I acknowledge that the Halloween party it has always produced mixed feelings on the one hand I love costumes and distributing candy to children and on the other I feel that it is a holiday outside this country. Anyway, I have never been very clear on whether to celebrate it or not … until a few days ago I heard that in the United States bull running like those of San Fermín and Tomatinas like that of Buñol are being organized.
Long live the party! and to set Halloween I have made this pendant with two hairy spiders. Below I explain how it is done.
I used one of the round handles of a bag to form the spider web. Since it was beige, I gave him a coat of black spray paint.
Once we have enough spokes, we begin to weave the web.
We tie a long piece of black wool in the center of the spider web and with the help of a knitting needle we go through each radius forming a spiral.
We continue with the spiral until completing all the web.
Next we form the pom-poms. These small plastic tools are very practical for this purpose.
Once we have rolled the wool and closed the plastic circle we pass four black pipe cleaners through the center.
We cut the wool and tie the pom-pom leaving the pipe cleaners hooked in the middle.
Once the plastic part has been removed, we shape the pipe cleaners to look like the spider’s legs and stick a couple of little eyes on it. To finish we hold the spiders in their web.
The truth is that these spiders are more cute than terrifying, but children sure love them.
