1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Easy to make creepy spider egg sack prop for Halloween on: October 22, 2013 09:27:12 AM
I liked the idea of having a bunch of spider related props/decorations for my Halloween parties each year, but didn't like how boring the ones I saw all over were. You know the kind, where it's just the white stocking filled with polyfil with webbing on the outside or something. I decided to make creepy versions:



I have the tutorial on my blog that shows how easy they are to make and maybe gives you guys an idea of how to play around with the idea? Hope you guys like!!

Will there be another contest soon or sometime later this year? I only just joined Craftster but dabble around with perlers on occasion and would be interested in participating? Or maybe even just a challenge or something??

This piece is AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!! Great job!! I don't notice any mistakes either!!! It all looks spot-on!

Question though.. I have only done as big as maybe a 2x3 board project biggest, and so I iron the whole piece as one and I'm done. With as big a project as this was for you, I noticed that you maybe ironed only the boards' worth of beads at a time, but the finished project doesn't look segmented or anything... How do you make it look like one giant single piece once you put it all back together? Huh  Huh  Huh

Thanks all!! I can't help it, my grandma got me excited in crafting and doing whatever looked neat, and I've just been doing more and more through the years  Smiley

@kbrison - thanks! They're all little 9"x4" clutches, but that one is actually a tablet case for my little Nexus 7" tablet, and has a front pocket to hold your charger and earbuds or whatever  Smiley

@LimeRiot - I will admit, I did cheat on the perlers since I saw the designs on-line or found the grids somewhere.. I haven't decided what pictures I want to try to grid myself to make yet, but hopefully I can figure something neat out. I've thought about doing 3D pieces, those seem like an awesome challenge!

This is just too cute!!! How big is the box? This looks like it's a little bigger than most miniatures, but still small enough to fit on a shelf or a desk at work or something..? Fantastic idea!!

I am currently working on this cross stitch from a pattern in the latest cross stitcher magazine. I have probably worked on it for 15 hours so far and still have a zig zag background to work on as well as finishing the dark green outline. http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/321707_19Aug13_20130819_091654.jpg

Wow!! I've thought about trying cross-stitch every now and then, but couldn't ever think of a good enough project that would keep me entertained lol!! I love this though and can't wait to see it done!! So awesome!!

Hi all!! I've been crafting for about 13 years now, but only just found this forum and decided to join!! I love the idea of a newbies board to be able to give a little idea of what we can contribute! These are some of the things I've worked on within the last year or so...

I'm trying to better my sewing skills...



I play with perlers...


I recently made an origami paper flower bouquet...


I play with polymer clay on occasion..




I've gotten a little into needle felting...


I've mostly done jewelry making though since I was 12 and my grandma taught me, some recent pieces are...



Basically, if it's crafty, I've tried it or want to!! I also have done some loom knitting, candle making, scrapbooking, painting, ATCs, and have eyed some other crafts... particularly miniatures intrigue me...

I can't wait to share the other projects I come up with and become more a part of this awesome community!!

Oh my gosh!! What a fantastic idea!! I have struggled with getting good pictures for years and just hadn't had a chance to make one of those collapsible ones I've seen tutes for over the years... but this one is actually easy looking!! Thank you so much for the idea!! I can't wait to make one and try it out! Although if it works, it means I just might have to re-take all the pictures of everything in my store!!! haha  Grin
