Halloween is coming…

…and we are having a party! Steve and I are going as June and Ward Cleaver. I still have to make my "cleaver" name tags but my dress and apron are ready. I made my red polka dot dress from Simplicity's  NewLook pattern #6824. I copied an apron that my mom made for me last year that made from an authentic 1950s pattern. I made a slip from netting to make the skirt stand out.

I also made some swizzle sticks to liven up the drinks.

I glued together a 1/2" and 3/8" pompom. Then I glued on the little eyes. Cut one pipe cleaner in half, then cut the halves in half. Twist them together to make 8 legs. Bend the legs and glue the spider bodies onto them.

You can make an army of little spiders or you can hot glue them onto the ends of tall, skinny wooden sticks.

Cute and creepy!
