Party DIY {Itsy Bitsy Spider}

Halloween is a mere week away and it's time to put the finishing touches on all those Halloween parties. While the scary details like ghosts popping out of dark hallways and spooky black punch are a given, it's time to concentrate on the little details that will make guests say wow! For this DIY I wanted something spooky in spirit with a handmade touch that didn't break the bank. This did just that. The rubber spiders I found in an 8 pack at Wal-Mart for $1.47. The rest of the supplies I had on hand in my craft bucket. After cutting some kraft paper down to size (3x2), I was off drawing spiderwebs in the corner and hot gluing spiders to them. These are great because they can be used in so many ways for your party. Try them as labels for food, place cards, or drink tags. Here's the step by step on making them for your party!

:: Supplies ::
Rubber Spiders
Hot Glue
3"x 2" Kraft Paper Pieces
Black Sharpie

:: Directions ::
1. Begin by drawing a line out of the center of the top left corner. Draw another line from the corner splitting the difference between the middle line and the edge of the paper. Repeat on the other side of the middle line. Draw a few more for a full looking web.
2. Starting near the corner, connect the lines with a slightly upward curved line that peaks at each line. Continue down the web forming rows.
3. Place a dab of hot clue on the back of the spider and adhere to paper.
4. Write each person's name or food item in the bottom right corner.

Have a great Tuesday!
