Spook-tac-u-lar Day 21: Spider Plate (And a Winner)

Welcome back to Day 21 of the Spook-tac-u-lar Halloween Crafts.  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ when you are finished visiting here.

Before we get to today's project, I would like to announce the winner of this week's giveaway.  The winner picked by random org is Comment 16, which belongs to Cricut Couple!  Congratulations, I will be sending you an email and get this mailed out to you once I get your address.  Also, remember there will be a new giveaway on Monday, so everyone will have another chance to win next week. :)

Now, for today's project I have a Spider Plate to share with you.  This is a simple and cute decoration that we will be using on the dessert table at our Halloween Party.


To make this plate, you will need:  a black charger plate (bought at Hobby Lobby), a small black bowl (bought at Target), two medium sized google eyes, eight black pipe cleaners, and a hot glue gun to attach everything.

First, I glued the two google eyes to the top of the large plate.

Next, I took my pipe cleaners and glued them to the bottom of the small bowl.  I glued four on each side to make the legs.  To begin with, just glue them down and leave them pointing straight out.

Next, use the hot glue to attach this bowl to the large plate (you can tell mine is not exactly center, but it works fine).  Once that is down, you can bend the pipe cleaners to be folded like legs and then glue them down to the bottom of the place to keep their shape where they bend around it.

When you turn your plate back over, you can finish shaping the pipe cleaners so that they fold down to the ground like legs.
And that is all there is too it.  You now have a cute spider plate for your Halloween treats.  You could also use smaller bowls and plates to make these in various sizes or even use other colors to have green or purple spiders if you wanted to.

I am adding this to the following challenge:
