Fun and Easy Halloween Project

Hi everyone!  Since I'm supposed to be packing to head up to Fyffle, AL to the Vintage Pickin' Barn Sale, I really have to hurry!!!  But, I just HAD to share this with you, because it was so fun and easy to do!  Let me get right to showing you how to do it.

You'll need:  An old window
                   Glass cleaner (I used Sprayway, which is GREAT, and made in the 
                         USA.)
                    Paper towels
                    Razor blade
                    Sharpie markers-Chisel tip and fine point
                    A big, scary, fuzzy spider

So, you'll need to clean the window really well on both sides.  Mine had paint overspray on it so I had to use a razor blade to scrape in places.  You'll flip it over several times, cleaning on each side, until it's squeaky clean.



Decide which side will be your front, and then flip it over.  The marker will be applied onto the back side of the glass, so that it's all shiny and smooth on the front.

Now, using either your imagination, or a sample spider web (free clip art from the web...sorry, pun intended) as a guide, start drawing your web.  I used the fat marker first for the bones of the web, beginning in the bottom corner and fanning the lines out across the window.  Once, you're satisfied with the fatter lines, simply fill in with the small marker to complete your web.




If you mess up, don't worry.  Just grab another paper towel, spray glass cleaner on the paper towel, and very carefully wipe away the messed up marks that you don't like.  You can also use the razor blade if they are stubborn.  

Once the web is finished, flip it over to see it from the front!  This is the fun part...


Now, go to Michael's or Hobby Lobby and find yourself a big fuzzy spider to hang from a string attached to the top edge of the window.  My window has a finger lift piece of hardware, so I will use it as a hanger for my spider.  


To see the completed project, come visit me at Vintage Pickin' in the big white tent, where this piece will be offered for sale!

Don't forget to send me pics of your Halloween spider web window!

*I received no compensation from any of the manufacturers mentioned...they are simply great products that I use.
