Halloween decorations can be scary, spooky or just plain cute. I usually have a mixture in my home. Before kids, I used to think the spookier the better. Now, that the kids have come along, I find that I often go with cute. Some decorations are just a little too scary for my 3 year old.
I decided that I wanted to make a decoration that my Becca Boo could do with me, she is my 3 year old. So we decided, that we would make cute little Goggly Eyed Spider Bowls.
You will need:
- Plastic or ceramic flower pot
- Black and Purple paint (or your color of choice)
- Goggly Eyes
- Chenille sticks or Pipe Cleaners
- Hot glue gun
- Black card stock
- Silver Sharpie or Black Sharpie
The first thing you need to do is paint the flower pot. We choose black and purple…Becca thought the spider should be purple. Make sure to paint the pot inside and out. Let the paint dry.
While the paint is drying you can get the spider legs ready. Bend the chenille stick to look like spider legs. We made eight legs since spiders have eight legs. Use the flower pots bottom to trace a circle on the black paper then cut it out.
Once the paint is dry you can glue the legs to the bottom of the flower pot.
Then use the black paper to cover where the legs have been glued.
Now, glue the goggly eyes to the flower pot.
Next, use the silver Sharpie to add a smile to the black spider or black Sharpie if you choose to make a color spider.
Your spider is now ready to be filled with some goodies.
