- Spray Adhesive
- Balloons (I use black, but you just want to use something that won't be noticeable, so white, black maybe green or gray...)
- Plastic spiders
- Plastic/paper plate or painter's tray for paint
- White fabric (I used a $3 twin sheet from Wal-Mart)
- Acrylic paint in gray, green and brown
- Surface you don't mind getting adhesive and paint on (I use a piece of another sheet I used for other props before; as you can tell, it's used a lot!)
The more wrinkles you can get on these pieces once they're laid down, the better. You also want to get about full coverage, but it's ok if little spots show through:
Don't worry about covering where the knot of the balloon is, you'll usually not see this part as you'd use the knot to tie string on and tie this guy up to hang somewhere in the corner.
Next, grab some webbing, but only a little piece. Webbing most of the time comes in these big, fat, yarn-like strands. I cut off about a 4"-6" piece for these balloons. Stretch it out a little beforehand so it's a little easier to spread. Grab your adhesive spray and lightly coat a good size portion of the visible balloon surface you can see. Spraying this much makes it faster on sticking down the webbing so you're not re-spraying in between each little area where you're laying it down.
When you're done with the webbing, just go ahead and stick a few plastic spiders in among the webbing and you're done!
What do you guys think?? Is this something you will be adding to your list for this Halloween or maybe next? Let me know how this method worked out for you and what your egg sacks look like!! I'd love to see them!!
Craft ya laters!!
