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

nina-yang-halloween-spookyspaces-pom-pom-spider-mantel I couldn't resist the black burlap. It was screaming to be tied into a bow! Haha! I love it! nina-yang-halloween-spookyspaces-pom-pom-spiders I'm glad I brought home the sparkly beads and the glass holder! Made quite a difference! Hope that you can see the sparkles in the yarn that I used for the spiders? nina-yang-halloween-spookyspaces-pom-pom-spider Now all I want to do is to make pom-pom spiders and put them everywhere!

Pom-Pom Spider Video Tutorial

There are many versions of pom-pom spiders out there, but I hope mine is still original? My husband insisted that spiders need legs. I had to improvise! :) nina-yang-halloween-pom-pom-spider-video-cover With the Clover Pom-Pom Maker, all we need is some yarn and a pair of scissors to make this spider. (Only add thread if you want to hang them.) It takes about 5 minutes to make one! Let's get started! (Watch it in HD here.) Clover makes some of the most innovative craft tools! I used their Ball-Knot tool on another project: Paper Ball with Ball Knot. You can get them for a few bucks at Jo-Ann.

The Coupon

Thanks Jo-Ann for letting me share the coupon here so you can save 50% on an item too! May I recommend using it on the new Fiskars 8" Amplify Mixed Media Shears? (As see in the video.) They work very well on both thin and thick materials - two thumbs up! JF13_Halloween_Coupon The coupon works online but visiting a Jo-Ann store is a lot more fun! Lots of inspiration and great sales are waiting for you! You can also find a project that you would like to make before you go at the brand new Celebrate the Season website! This post is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores® Celebrate the Season campaign. I received compensation in craft supplies for this post; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.  All products used were my personal choice.  Thank you Jo-Ann!  Thank you for stopping by! Happy Halloween!
