DIY Spider Garden Art for Halloween

I love Halloween and decorating the house and porch for the trick or treaters. But my store bought spiders are for hanging under the eves because they are furry and wont stand up to the Portland, Oregon rain. So I wanted to make one that I could put out in the grass that would look good even in a rain storm. And since my hubby had some extra conduit in the basements, I had an idea.

I went to Joann Fabrics and bought a couple of styrofoam balls.

Then I painted them black.
And Lars helped me add the legs.
I thought it turned out pretty nice but it was lacking personality.
So I gave it a mouth and some eyes.

And Wah-Lah, Fun Garden Art for Halloween.
