Trick or Treat Spider Hanger

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Give me something good to eat!!! Craft foam and glitter glue, a marriage made in craft heaven. These little hangers would be great projects for kids, or for you to make and take to the teachers at school. I made mine 5" x 7", but you can make them any size. A big one would be fab on your front door!

You need:
craft foam: orange (5"x7"), black (4.5" x 5.5"), purple (4"x6")
pre-cut craft foam stars to match
12" of orange grosgrain ribbon with white dots
glitter glue: orange, black, purple, opal
2 8mm round crystal gems
2 black chenille stems

Try this:
1. Make the spider. Use a glass or something round to trace and cut out about a 2" circle. Cut the chenille stems in half. Glue them on the back side of the spider to form legs, bending the feet a bit. Cover the front of the spider with opal glitter glue. Set the gems in for eyes. Let dry.
2. Glue the three rectangle craft foam pieces together as you see them in the picture. Click on the pic to make it larger.
3. Glue the ribbon to the back, at the top to make the hanger.
4. On the front, glue 6 stars in place.
5. Print the words Trick or Treat on the front of the purple craft foam. Go over the lines with glitter glue. Add some purple glitter glue swirls on the background. Dot some orange glitter glue on the orange foam, and some purple in the centers of the stars.
6. Glue that scary spider at the bottom right corner. Let everything dry at least overnight before hanging or giving away.

If you are planning a treat bag for your little goblins, throw in a couple bottles of glitter glue. Lasts longer than candy and way better for your teeth!

Glitter on!
