Spooky Spider's Nest Lit Topiary

It's that time of year again...It's Halloween Crafting Time and just lookie at what I made this year!

It's a Spider's Nest Lit Topiary!  

Here's how I made it:

First, I scored this great urn at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for only $5.00.

I had a dowel leftover from my Fake Wrought Iron Curtain Rod project, but it was slightly too small for the urn, so I stuffed a plastic bag inside with is using a scissor.  That made the rod nice and sturdy.

I added a 10-inch Styrofoam ball on top of the rod...

...and filled the urn base with plastic shopping bags.

I wrapped the foam ball with some black scrap fabric, then a string of 50 purple lights.

Next, I wrapped the whole thing with some spider webs, using the lights as a great place to "catch" the webs as I wrapped.

A bunch of spiders completes the look!

Don't forget the Mama Spider!

I added some grey moss to the base and glued a few glow-in-the-dark spiders for contrast.

Lit up, it really looks creepy, crawly & spooky!

This makes a great addition to my Halloween Entryway Display to dazzle those Trick-Or-Treaters this year!

The Fake-It Yourself Breakdown:

Spider's Nest Topiary (Urn $5.00, Dowel $0.00, Styrofoam Ball $8.00, Webs & Spiders $2.00, Grey Moss $1.00, Spider Ribbon $1.00, Lights $3.00)
