Glass Spider Ornaments

This craft can take on many moods of Halloween. It can be elegant and fancy or spooky and devilish. The crafter decides if this little Halloween spider is nasty or nice.


Colored glass ball complete with top and loop

Four pipe cleaners



Glue - dries clear and sticks to glass




Cut the 4 pipecleaners in half.

String a bead onto the pipe cleaner and twist a knot in the end to keep the bead from falling off. This will create the spider?s foot. Repeat for a total of 8 legs.

Remove the top cover and loop from the top of the glass ornament.

Add glue to the inside top rim of the glass ball.

Bend the end of the pipe cleaner without the bead (about 1/2 inch) to fit inside the top rim of the glass ball. Glue the legs in place 4 on each side making the legs of the spider. Remember to leave space for the spider to have a front and face if desired.

Replace the top and loop to the top of the glass ball.

Add rhinestones to the front of the glass ball to design the front of the spider. A pattern of a few stones or a just a pair of eyes work well. This is where you get creative.

Cut a piece of ribbon and string it through the loop on top of the glass ornament.

Hang the ornament for decoration, give as a gift, or make more to sell at the craft show.

Pretty Pumpkin

Oh so pretty or scary or funny or gross you decide. This is another one of those crafts that takes on the personality of the crafter once they choose the design that goes on the pumpkin. Choose paper patterns with roses, leaves, ribbons, pumpkins, glitter, bright reds, oranges, textured papers to make pretty pumpkins. Choose paper patters with body parts, bugs, vampires, monsters, scary weapons or snakes if you are going for the scary or gross pumpkin. You can also show your humor with prints from cartoons, or funny pictures of Halloween.
