Spiders Spiders Everywhere




I've volunteered to help out with the elementary school's haunted house fund raiser this year. What a mistake that was! I haven't been able to sleep because I keep scheming up new things for the haunted house. I'm having lots of fun but sheesh! I've gotta get some sleep!

Last night I made these spider nests for the arachnid room. I got the idea from Martha Steward magazine. They used Styrofoam balls but as I discovered styrofoam balls are kind of expensive (who knew?) so I stole a couple of wiffle balls from the garage I think they worked okay.

I'm also making a more ambitious prop - a haunted mirror. I'll post most pictures when I finish building the contraption.
