October Countdown to Halloween Day 2

I hope you all enjoyed reading my first Halloween post, 'Some of the History of Halloween Part 1', all about superstitions. Look forward to more of these history lessons and crafty goodness.

The first craft of my October Countdown to Halloween series is a Glittered Spiderweb Hurricane. I can't take credit for the idea, but I knew I wanted to make it for Halloween this year. This idea comes from my friend Priscilla, the brilliant mind behind the 'Thrifty Crafty Girl' blog. This is one of the ideas from her, '31 Days of Halloween' series of last year. You can download the spiderweb template from Martha Stewart Halloween.

Check out Thrifty Crafty Girl for photos and detailed directions. I purchased this frosted glass at a thrift store, but TCG shows you how to paint frost onto clear glass.

My container is a different size and shape than TCG's, so as you see, it
can be done with a bit of tweaking here and there.

I had to mess around with my template, trying to make it fit, so my lines aren't perfect. But guess what? It looks fine anyway!

I will probably refer to Thrifty Crafty Girl throughout the month, so you might as well follow her, too. She is so funny and honest! Have Fun creating for Halloween.................B O O
