2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / GIANT Spider Web Tutorial on: October 11, 2007 03:22:13 PM
This is my first tutorial so I hope it comes out alright.

Materials you will need: http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0504
zip ties (clear or white)
white rope made of synthetic material (quantity depends on how big you make it)
scissors
tent stakes (mine are yellow because they were the cheapest, but they make metal and glow in the dark as well)

Step 1:
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0507
Lay out a spiral of rope on the ground. Make it as big as you'd like but remember you will need the space to put it up in.

Step 2:

http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0510
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0511
Lay out strips of rope on top of the spiral in an asterisk. (You can add more if you want, but you need at least 3 strips for it to look correct.)

Step 3:

At each intersection, use a zip tie to connect the ropes. Make sure to have all of the tails coming out on the same side. This way, you will have a finished and an unfinished side of the web.

Step 4:
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0519
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0520
Snip off the tails of the zip ties.

Step 5:
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0522
http://gallery.mac.com/ram02#100030/IMG_0523
Hang the web from trees or anything handy. Stake it off in the ground or anchor it somehow if you are doing it indoors.

Don't forget your spider for the finishing touch! Mine is from walgreens. The legs bend so they hook on to the web easily.
3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween bachelor/ette party HELP! IDEAS PLEASE! on: October 11, 2007 09:53:28 AM
My boyfriend is fulfilling his best manly duties and throwing a combined bachelor/bachelorette party. The couple asked for a keg and about 30 people to come.  We went out and bought tons of candy, a table cloth for our banquet table, a fog machine and a few other random things. I'm going to make a huge spider web in the front yard and I'll post it after I make it. 

Decorations that were in the stores all looked well... the same!  We have a great deck and back yard.  I plan on closing in the carport in front for a grand spooky entrance. I'm going to put black lights up around the house.  Other than that, I don't know what to do.

I need ideas for what to do for the yard and deck, along with any activities we should (or shouldn't do.)  Also, it would be nice to work in the adult theme some how. 

PLEASE HELP  Smiley

I haven't tried ANY of these, but I've been wanting to! (They're in my bookmarks under "Spooky Food".. although none seem to be main courses...)

The kitty litter cake: http://www.fabulousfoods.com/recipes/dessert/cakes/kittylittercake.html (double ew! Wink )



I once made something simiar for a kid's party but instead of buying the cat stuff, I just used a pyrex baking dish. It still looked like a litter box but didnt have to buy more stuff. A slotted spatula works as well. I put a layer of the cereal "Grape Nuts" in the bottom of the baking dish.  For the "poop," use little debbie brownies.  Shape them with your hands and throw 'em on top of the "litter." That's basically all there is to it.  The parents and kids alike were horrified and enchanted at the same time. What a hit! (It looks really real, so at first they're really hard to eat)
