I love getting crafty and usually make something for Halloween, here are my latest creations to add to the ‘Halloween Box’:
Pom-Pom Spiders and Pumpkins
What you will need
- Coloured Wool
- 6cm cardboard squares
- Pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Paper and felt tips
What you need to do
Wind the wool around the cardboard square, top to bottom, until it is thickly covered.
Tie (with a bow) a small piece of wool securely around the middle of the wool and the cardboard.
Using scissors carefully cut the wool horizontally at both ends of the cardboard.
Gently remove the cardboard and insert your pipe cleaners under the wool tied around the middle, then untie the bow, pull the wool tight and knot it.
Fluff up the wool and trim off any long pieces, bend you pipe cleaners to form spiders legs or pumpkin stalks and leaves
Make and stick on eyes and a pumpkin face.
I have used black and orange wool but any colour will do, if you have lots of shorter lengths they can be tied together for a muti-coloured Spider or Pumpkin, hang your Pom-Pom creations individually or in a row in the window or from the doorway.
