Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 1

  Happy Halloween! 
the next 4 days... colorful is on a spooky adventure! won't you join me..? wahhh haaa haaaa

the first project
creepy crape paper mache spider

as you can see it's pretty huge! and boy was it fun to make!
this is how

paper mache how to: 
  • 5 parts water 
  • 1 part flour
  • 2 Tabls salt (preservative)
  • boil about 3 minutes and let cool

blow up 2 ballons 
  • 1st super large (spider body) 
  • 2nd tiny (as spider head)  
cover balloons with paper mache 
  • i found it easier to cover the balloon 1st with computer paper then use the crate paper (makes it SOO much easier to work with cause it dries faster and is tuffer!)
hang balloon
  • by knotted end (ya know the belly button) - i hung it in the laundry room over the deep sink
once dry 
  • pop ballons 
  • hot glue the 2 balloons together at the hole ends (at the holes where the balloon belly button was pooping out) 
  • hang
  • add legs with crepe paper - and you're done!
super spooky right?!

now for something not so spooky!
