Let's make a Spiders Nest. - The Magic Onions

Let’s make a Spiders Nest.

Halloween seems to have crept up on us this year… is it really only one week away? We had better hurry up and enjoy some Halloween crafting!

Today, we made a horrid pumpkin… a really SCARY pumpkin! Look at it… eeek! It’s not nice at all!!

It’s a pumpkin spiders nest and it creeps me out! Teddy had the best fun making it… he really thinks it’s cool and so does A Good Man… must be a boy thing.

We started with a pumpkin, sharpie, sharp knife, a hot glue gun and a bowl full of spiders.

Kitty is in First Grade and she is learning her letters. She was very proud to be able to draw a big ‘O’ for the ‘O’pening!

I carefully cut out her hole with Mr T ever so eager to start placing the spiders.

With our hot glue gun, we stuck the spiders in place to look like they were swarming out of the hole in the pumpkin.

Yuck… I can’t stand it. Make it at your own peril…

Happy Halloween week.
Blessings and magic,
