Blast from the Past

I did a guest post for Oops I Craft My Pants a few days ago.
I thought I would share with my readers in case you missed it.
I made this guy last year.
But he was so cute I decided to give him another shout out!
And I will tell you how I made him.
Here is my how to:
Supplies needed:
Fun Fur (you can buy it at walmart)
Floral Styrofoam form.  
Wooden Dowel
Pipe Cleaners
Spider webs
Start by wrapping the fun fur all over the Styrofoam. 
Take the pipe cleaners and cut them in half.  
Stick them into the body of the spider.
You can add a dab of hot glue to make it stick better.
 At this point you can add eyeballs to your spider.
Now onto the bucket to place your spider in.
Paint your wooden dowel to whatever color you choose.
I chose orange cause the spider was already black and I wanted to contrast.
Put a little more Styrofoam in the bottom on the bucket and place spider webs on top.
Then all you have to do is stick the wooden dowel into the spider and place in bucket.
It was REALLY easy and took about a half hour to make!
