Have you seen this idea yet?

My favorite antique vendor had a lace doily in a embroidery hoop for a spider web. I came home and scoured my supplies.

I decided my spiders needed a dusting of white glue and Martha glitter for a little bit of glam.

A vintage glittered tag was the final touch.


My spider web is taking up residence over my kitchen window and I decided to give the area a Halloween make-over.

Vivian, your garland looks fabulous in my window.

Happy Halloween!

Kim,
LOVE the spider web idea!! I never saw that before but what a great idea!!
I looked at that spooky cloth so many times this season and keep deciding not to get it. Maybe once it hits clearance, I will pick it up for next year.
The area area your kitchen window looks terrific!! So festive!!

Hugs,
Debbie

The lace doily as a spider web is a fantastic idea! I just don't know if I can do it here... I am not a spider fan. (We have more than enough of real ones here. Ugh. If you want to hear me shriek, just put me in the same room as a little jumping spider.) So I tend to stick with pumpkins and black cats for Halloween.

I really like all embroidery hoop wall art, this is a great idea!

vivian said...

I love the spider web idea! will have to keep my eyes open for an old doiley.. actually probably have a few somewhere in the bottom of something!
Glad you like the banner! did you notice in one of my last posts that I posted a picture of the pumpkin scones you had sent me?
I had fun swapping with you! might have to become something annual!
have a great day!
xoxo
