[Video Tutorial] DIY Pom-Pom Spider for Halloween Decoration + a Coupon

Hello everyone! Today’s project was inspired by a wooden stick that I found in front of our home. I’ve wanted to try spray paints for a while and I knew immediately that I could use the stick with pom-pom spiders for the Jo-Ann #spookyspaces campaign for Halloween! I remembered seeing a “pompom garland” tip sheet at the “Creativity Made Simple” shelf at my local Jo-Ann store and knew that I could find the pom-pom makers there. My objective was to create a neat Halloween decoration for under $25.  So with my coupons I began. For a moment, I was distracted by the black feather wreath, face paints and all the cute decorations for Halloween, but I pretty much stuck to the plan and made all of the items shown below (including the glass and beads) for $24.74! Halloween Mantel Decoration I couldn’t resist the black burlap. It was screaming to be […]
