meagan wanted to put spider webs all over our house. i, however, don't care for the stringy, messy white spider web stuff you can buy. so i saw an idea online, and thought it might be a good compromise for us. here' the end result:
super easy. i used mini command strip tabs. put 8 around the window. then used yarn (purple/brown/gray/black blend... meagan's choice) to make the base of the web... 1 vertical from tab to tab, one horizontal from tab to tab, and 2 diagonal from tab to tab (like an asterisk). then use a LOOOOOONG piece of yard doubled over to loop around the asterisk-shaped base, tie it off, and trim the extra. finally i used a twisty tie to fix a glittery spider to the web and voila.
original instructions can be found
here... . i deviated a bit from her instructions, but same basic concept. super easy. took about 15 minutes. and CHEAP. i like cheap.
here's the rest of our outside ensamble.
we also have lights on the bushes, which, by the way, are working now. hooray!
