I found this little wood tray at Goodwill for under a dollar and knew that I could use it for this.
I painted it gray using a spray paint primer. I put some floral foam in it and hot glued a dowel.
I wrapped some orange and black ribbon around the dowel and stuck a foam ball on top. Once that was done, I needed some cobwebs.
I didn't have any cobwebs. I was in my pajamas and I didn't want to go get any cobwebs. So, I used cotton balls. In a pinch, they worked just fine... and I didn't have to get dressed.
I sort of scraped the cotton ball over the foam ball and let the webbing happen naturally.
And then it was all covered. Now, at this point at least, it looked like a snowball.
Plastic spider rings to the rescue!
I cut off the ring and hot-glued a straight pin to the bottom.
I stuck in the spiders and added some moss and more spiders to the bottom.
