3-D Spider

Today's project is what I came up with for the Halloween challenge that SVG Cuts is having on their blog. I used Party on Elm Street, and Midnight Jamboree (for the eyes).

I used the cauldron for the body, and covered it with spider web paper from K&Co. (Halloween paper stack) I embossed with my tiny bubble embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

I cut out the spider legs and used Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Marker for the stripes.

I wanted this to be a fun spider so I used some cute eyes from one of the pumpkins in the Midnight Jamboree kit. I made two triangles from my shapes library for the fangs.

The witch hat is the cone candy holder without the folds, so I was able to trim the bottom and create a round cone. I crunched the top a little to make it look more like a witch hat and used hot glue to attach it to a circle (also from my shapes library. I created the buckle as well by creating a frame and welding a rectangle in the middle.

A little fun ribbon for the hat and bow-tie finish it off!

I made the haunted house last year, and along with some fun orange and purple lights, and a black light, I think this cute spider fits right in.
Ahhh, he's attacking the ghosts and little puny spiders on the house!

Now he's in the tree! Watch out, he's coming for you next!

Or not, he seems to like it up here.

So that's that, and I hope you don't encounter any real spiders this size, and if you do, I'm sorry. Oh, and Happy Friday to all!
