DIY Christmas Spider Inspiration

Have you tried my DIY Christmas Spider tutorial?  If so, send me photos because I'd love to see!  Because I sell them, I have been making dozens of these one-of-a-kind sparklers, so if you haven't given my tutorial a whirl yet, I have plenty of inspiration for you:

The Charlies
(Lime green, like our DIY'd car):

Hubby's Faves
(What a cutie - he had a hard time picking just four!):

Sophie's Choice
(How do I pick a favorite?  I'll go with my default favorite for everything - turquoise):

The Edwards
(Pale and sparkly):

Pretty in Pink:

The Blues Brothers:

You knew there would be a Grey & Yellow spider:

The Sellers
(I hate making red & green ones but they always sell first.  Sometimes I cheat and make turquoise & red ones):

A lone purple one:



  1. So cute. I made a couple and they are super easy to make. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. So happy to hear that! Definitely post/share photos because I'm soooo curious to see your spiders.

  3. those are REALLY cool.....and very creepy. I say that because I'm terrified of spiders.

  4. Awww, even pretty, sparkly ones?

    I'm not a huge fan of spiders, but I feel like they're on my side because they eat other, creepier bugs I'd rather not deal with. I need bigger spiders to deal with the giant centipedes that own my basement.

  5. Love, love, love. I haven't done it yet but will definitely be making one for my son (afraid of spiders!)

  6. Carol, kids love these spiders! They play with them and mush them up (cute, but the mushing makes me edgy).

    Thanks Amelia!

  7. I love the yellow and grey spider!! xx

  8. this is so cute! my favorites are the Edward's. ;)
