DIY Spiderweb Treat Bowl

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Sometimes I surprise myself, especially when it comes to crafting. This little Halloween project started as an idea in my head and I questioned its success during the execution, but it turned out so great, I just had to share.

I attempted a similar bowl with yarn and wire last year but it was a total #craftfail. I approached it again with a different attitude turning to the tried and true glue plus water plus string formula that others have used in the past. Great news, the method worked and as a result I constructed a clever yet creepy Halloween treat bowl inspired by one of our favorite Halloween motifs: the spiderweb.

Remember all those DIY string ball pendant fixtures we were so wild about a few years ago? The ones that required you mix glue and water and dip your string and wrap it around a large plastic ball and then insert a pendant kit inside? This is basically the same idea. Without the lightbulb. Want to create one of these spiderweb bowls? It’s pretty cheap and remarkably easy.

Autumn Party Highlights

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Welcome back to another week everyone, hope you all had a relaxing weekend! I had my hands full with projects involving black paint from a front door at the shelter house to a set of two small chests, both given a makeover with primer and paint.  I’ll share them soon, but in the meantime, I’d like to thank all of those bloggers who linked up last week to the Autumn Party, here are a few tablescapes and vignettes that caught my eye.

I love the contrast between the chalkboard runner and white accents on Liz Marie’s table.

Get inspired by KariAnne at Thistlewood Farm, she knows how to style a hutch for fall!

I love how Pam at Simple Details saved oh $1,700+ and created a $5 vase inspired by a Kelly Wearstler bowl.

“October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came, the Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
and leaves of every name…” read more of this poem and see more of this tablescape at Back Porch Musings.
