spookyDIY:
scary spider specimen display

<<< psst! you can see a full list of my diy projects here! >>>

[SNAPSHOT]
time : minutes
difficulty : ★   ☆ ☆
hazards : hot glue gun burns
would i do it again? : yes


i've got ghosts and mummies and pumpkins galore...but some spooky spiders were missing from my holiday decorating. if they're missing from yours too, don't fret! it's an easy fix.

[SUPPLIES]
   > an old picture frame
   > spraypaint
   > a piece of pretty paper
   > glue gun
   > spiders
         - i found my fancy glittery guys at michael's

first, find a suitable frame...i have a stash of frames i've scored at goodwill. i think it's time for one of these to make his grand debut...
the gold guy to the far left!

i spraypainted him black.

...then inserted my piece of pretty paper:
i realize the paper looks very bland in this shot.
it's actually a lovely shade of gold with a slight sheen.

there's no need to replace the glass in the frame.

once the picture frame is all set up, it's spider time!

prearrange your spiders in a visually appealing layout...
then get to work with your hot glue gun!

just a few minutes later and...

ta-da!
told ya they were fancy!

there you have it! in just minutes, we have created another spooky addition to our halloween decor.

now, what to do with the extra spiders......?
