Hi everyone! Today we are skipping the book blog hop because Mom hasn’t had time to read much. I want to tell you about our spiders.
After Halloween, Mom bought a spider kit on clearance at Michael’s. Have you ever heard of The Legend of the Christmas Spider? If not, click here to read about it.
Her kit came with the black pipe cleaners already cut and 2 sizes of pompoms. You just twist 4 pipe cleaners together, then glue a small pompom onto a big one then glue that onto the pipe cleaners. A spider needs a web though so Mom bought some silver pipe cleaners and had Dad cut them in half for her.
She made a plus sign out of 2 pipe cleaners and an x with 2 more then wound some gold yarn around them. Then she twisted the yarn around each piece going in a circle two times. She copied the story onto Christmas paper and will give these out as party favors on Christmas Eve so everyone can have a spider in their Christmas tree.
PS: I love my Grammie very much, I can’t wait to see her soon.
