This silly spider straw slip on makes a great accent to any Halloween drink. We love the idea of putting this scary straw in a goblet full of tasy witch's brew! There isn't a better, Halloween combination than a witch's furity potion and eerie spiders!
1 sheet each (8 1/2 x 11) black & yellow cardstock
Black fine tip marker
Scrap cardboard or cutting mat
Cut black cardstock into an oval that is @ 1 1/2-inches by 2-inches. (Don’t worry about making a perfect shape. I think a misshapen spider is very cute!
Cut 8 (1/4-inch) thin by 3-inch long strips of black cardstock for the spider’s legs. Coil each strip around the toothpick to give it make it a spiral. Apply glue stick to the ends of the spider legs and attach them to the back of the spider; 4 on each side.
Punch a hole out of the yellow cardstock and cut the punched-out hole in half for the spider’s eyes. Apply each eye to the spider using glue stick. Draw the spider’s pupils on to the yellow eyes using the black mark.
Place the spider (right side up so you can see his eyes) on the scrap cardboard or cutting mat. An adult should use the craft knife to cut 2 (1-inch long) horizontal slits through the spider’s body below his eyes for the straw to slip through.
Insert the straw through the slits from the back of the spider position it near the top. Plop it into a Halloween drink as decoration!
