This was inspired by the news story about the house that had brown recluse spiders erupting from the walls... While I don't mind having spiders in the house, poisonous spiders crawling out from every nook and cranny? No thanks!

So, this pumpkin is decorated with almost 37.5 (one is still "emerging" from the hole I gouged into the side) plastic spiders (they were rings, and I cut a portion of the ring off so I could stick them into the pumpkin). It will eventually become squirrel food, so I didn't want to glue the spiders on (as irritating as my local squirrels are, I wouldn't want one to choke on a plastic spider). For now, it sits in the dining room, and it's sure to give me a start every time I turn on the lights... Even with the lights on, I can almost swear they're moving...

I decided to put the pumpkin out on the steps and, much to my surprise, the squirrels have not eaten it yet! Maybe the spiders freak them out...

I'm stunned to report that the squirrels still have not taken a bite... I'm starting to feel a bit bad that they haven't had their treat, so I may have to pluck the spiders off for them Smiley

What a great no-carve pumpkin idea. It's creepy as all get-out. Nicely done!

Thanks, rackycoo! Even the squirrels thought it was creepy, since they never took a bite. It was the first time a pumpkin has ever lasted on my steps!
