This may be hard to believe because when I was a kid this was my favorite Halloween decoration we had - it was so exciting when we could pull it out. And the first one I made was to resemble the one my mom had when I was a kid - the black one with the red bow tie. But then I made 3 more with different colored pom-poms because the package of pom-poms I found at Michael's was a huge variety and only had enough black pom-poms for one spider. Anyway, I'm lucky there was only enough for one because the experimental spiders out of the colored pom-poms are my favorite!! SO adorable :) Don't you think?
So this spider has a long string attached to it that you hook to the ceiling and tape to the front door. That way when you open the door the spider slides up and down and looks like it's greeting whoever's come to visit. I LOVED this as a kid. We'd put it up and I'd stand at the front of the house and move the door open and closed so I could see that fuzzy little spider move up and down. I also remember racing to get the door whenever the doorbell rang so fast (so that I could show our guests our super cool Halloween decoration) that the only way for me to slow down was to ram into the door. I'm sure I scared people on our doorstep half to death when they heard me slam into the door on the other side. But Halloween time is for scaring people, right? ;)
So, now that we know these are so adorable, you get to know that it's your lucky day!! Because I'm GIVING AWAY 3 of these babies and they could go to any of you! What I'm going to do is enter your name in a drawing and draw 3 lucky people out. I'll contact you and find a way to mail it to you. You can choose what you want to do to enter this drawing: Follow me on Pinterest, Like my Facebook page, or Follow me on Blogger. Leave me a comment on this post (or on Facebook) letting me know which one you did - if you want to do all 3 (or if you're already following me on all 3) leave a comment giving me that info and then I'll enter your name 3 times!! You can enter now until Saturday October 5th at midnight. After that I'll total everything up and contact the winners! The order you're drawn in will be the order you get to pick your spider in - so if you're the first person to win you can take your pick from 4 different spiders (black, orange, white, purple)!
