Spider Pumpkin


Yesterday was pumpkin decorating contest day at work.  Now I'm not pumpkin carver, let alone decorator.  Heck I can't even remember the last time we bought a pumpkin for Halloween.  Nonetheless, I thought it would be fun to play along.
 
Using a pumpkin provided by work I decided to turn it into a spider using the Party on Elm Street file from SVG Cuts. 
 
I spray painted the pumpkin black using Rustoleum spray paint.  Then for a couple of days I allowed it to just sit and cure.  After that I cut the legs and eyes out from the SVG Cuts file.  The eyes were cut from vinyl for easy placement and the legs from a sturdy cardstock.
  
After getting the spider put together I created his web using black and white webbing stacked on top of each other.  I was hoping I had some plastic spiders in my 'minis' stash but there were none.  However, I had some little mice so I used those to place in the webbing to add a little extra touch.

Now I'm off to enter this into the Halloween challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.
