For a few years I’ve seen those metal spider leg cupcake holders that you use to add a little creepy crawly to your Halloween cupcakes and thought… It would be so fun to make something with those cute legs rather than just a cupcake.  Then it hit me… why not take a black Christmas ornament, turn it upside down onto the legs and add some googlie eyes. How cute will that be. Here’s what you will need…

supplies for a spooky spider

  • Black Christmas ornaments (I used the glitter kind, but it doesn’t matter)
  • Large self-adhesive google eyes

All you have to do in invert the Christmas ornament onto the cupcake holder like this…

No need to glue them together if you don’t want.  I decided that I wanted to keep my options open, so I didn’t glue them together. I have commitment issues. Then you can place the eyes wherever you see fit and voila, your done!  Now all you have to do is find some fun spots to place these cute little creepy crawlies.

    Terrific idea.  I have never seen the cupcake holders.  But very clever on your part.  So cute….  Not only that kids some times need to bring craft spiders and bigger is better.  This would be so simple for a mom and child to do.
