Delightfully Wicked Halloween Hop With Sweet Spider Treats and a Giveaway!

I'm having fun on the blog today with the
Delightfully Wicked Halloween Hop!
I'm excited to be a part of the festivities...
Be sure to read to the end of the blog for all the Delightfully Wicked Halloween creativity and a giveaway!

But first, take a look at what's been 'crawling' around our home.

Sweet Spider Treats

 
(I only like spiders if they're chocolaty and cute!)

These sweet arachnids only take a few minutes to 'spin up' and you too can have them crawling around your table...or in your kids' lunchbox...or to your neighbor's home...across the teacher's desk...or right into your mouth!
 
They're super simple to make using:
-clear, plastic condiment cups
-brown colored M&M's (or any other dark candy or items)
-1 sharp, pointed toothpick
-3 brown or black chenille stems (I call them pipe cleaners.)
-2 great big plastic googly eyes. 
-Glue Dots or hot glue gun




(1) Fill a plastic condiment cup with any dark colored candies. 
You could also use other items besides candy...pennies, stickers, etc.  (Unfortunately for me, it always has to be chocolate...preferably dark chocolate!)


 


You can find these plastic, lidded condiment cups at the grocery store or party store.  Look in the picnic aisle right next to the toothpicks.  It's the perfect location, since you'll need a toothpick to punch holes in the lid.



(2) Of course you'll need to make your spider with 8 legs.
(You don't want the kids making comments about inaccurate spiders, right?)
  Place the lid on the cup and use a sharp toothpick to punch four holes along the rim, on each side.  Be sure to leave room for the eyes.


(3)  Cut 4 pipe cleaners in half and place one 'leg' in each hole. You can make the legs any length.  However, they do look more 'spidery' if you bend each leg a bit.



(4) Attach the googly eyes with Glue Dots or a dab of hot glue.



Now, these are the types of spiders I will welcome any day--
how about you?
