31 Days of Halloween 2013 - Day 9

This ball is very special.  It can ward away teenage trick or treaters who ring the doorbell after the house lights are out, candies are gone and you've settled in to watch American Horror Story.  Hang the ball overhead if your front porch is covered otherwise it can be hung from your exterior light.


I chose a spiderweb stamp with lots of detail. (Inkadinkadoo)
Next I picked a flower punch and a spider punch.

Next, stamp the flowers with the spiderweb. Pin the flowers one by one onto a styrofoam ball, curling up the edges. Glue the spiders in a random pattern.
