Halloween Configuration Book Part 13

Hi bloggers! We are so close to getting done. 
Only a few more boxes to go and Halloween is just around the corner. 

Spiders, spiders everywhere. 

Gather your supplies - Shrink Plastic, Bird Cage, Fired Brick Distress Glitter, Black Soot Distress Paint and Black and Cream Trimmings. Die cut several Mini Spiders form Shrink Plastic. 

Shrink the Spiders by heating with a heat tool. As they curl and shrink you can hold them with a craft pick. Continue to heat until they flatten back out. 

Paint the back sides of the spiders with Black Soot Distress Paint. Let dry.

Add a little Glossy Accents.

Add Distress Glitter to the Glossy Accents. Let dry.

Open the Bird Cage by removing the jump ring and cover back with spider web paper. Add spiders as desired and close the birdcage by replacing the jump ring. Use foam tape to adhere the Bird Cage to the box.  Embellish the top with a piece of black and cream trimmings and a few more spiders. 

When you finish you can upload your project as late as Friday, November 15th at midnight PST. I can't wait to see what you've done!

Have a creative day!

  1. Spiders in a cage, what a great idea! Thanks for the spiders in my Christmas stocking. Of course, I don't have the cage, thought I had at least two of them, but no. Two years ago, I made an articulated spider out of beads and orange jewelry wire and used it as a pendant on a Halloweeny necklace. I've only worn it once, so I decided to detach the big ol' spider and used it as the cage for my little spiders. It looks soo cool.
