DIY Spiderweb Treat Bowl

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.

FLOR Rug Giveaway

October 16th, 2013

Midweek greetings all, a lovely giveaway for you today! I’m sure many of you are familiar with FLOR, the modular carpet design squares company revolutionizing the industry with carpet squares that allow you to create custom rugs, runners, or wall to wall designs.

I’ve used FLOR tiles in family rooms and playrooms and I love how FLOR carpet design squares combine style with durability. They’re constructed atop a non-stick surface and connected by adhesive dots so they stay in place, but can easily be swapped out if one gets soiled.
