It's October already, can you believe it? Only 28 days to Halloween!
Yesterday I made my first ever real Halloween window display.
All September I have been browsing window displays on-line,
looking for inspiration for a Halloweenie, but also pretty, backdrop.
But I just couldn't find anything that didn't involve spending lots of money.
Then a few days ago it hit me - a beaded string spider web!
A few months ago I came across beaded string on sale at a craft store.
The first thing I made was this shooting star curtain for our canopy bed.
I still love lying in bed watching them twirl (even though I have,
on several occasions, almost poked out an eye getting in to bed).
But I still had tons of beaded string left when I was done. And that was
a good thing, because this smallish spider web needed about 15 m (50 ft)
of string. (For curious Swedish readers; this is what I used.)
The great thing about plastic beaded string is that you can
easily attach it onto itself. It made for a quick and easy craft,
and it made the spider web look pretty elegant.
All that's missing is the spider, and I'm getting one this weekend.
Sorry about the crappiness of the pictures, it was hard taking pictures
in my tiny window, without showing too much of the store.
But If I may say so myself, I am quite proud of my idea!
Thank you Marfi for hosting these magical Haunted Humpdays!
