Today I have a quick and inexpensive tutorial for a spooooky cobweb Halloween pumpkin. So cute! And, okay, not really all that spoooooky. This idea is in the Country Living book, Spooky & Bright: 101 Halloween Ideas. Which includes crafts, party decor and recipes. This particular ideas was so quick and easy, I couldn't pass it up!
If you love Halloween, you'll love this book! Spooky & Bright boasts plenty of pictures and helpful tips. There's an entire section just on pumpkin crafts, which are my favorite. But, the edible crafts and recipes are super cute as well. And, they've included some free templates in the back, which make it a breeze to recreate the ideas.
For the cobweb pumpkin, you'll need a plain, white pumpkin (or an orange pumpkin, spray-painted white!), a black marker and a faux-spider. To turn your white pumpkin into a spider's web, take your sharpie and draw a continuous line all around the pumpkin, starting from the top. Then, draw a black line over each of the pumpkin grooves, from top to bottom. Glue a plastic spider in place, and you're all done!
Spiders (12 pack)- $2.25
Total = $3.04/one
OR, this would only cost $0.97/one if you made a dozen and used every spider. Wouldn't these be cute Halloween party favors or playcard holders?? I think so!
