I love spiders and their beautiful webs and do not often get to embrace that fun... until Halloween! This is a simple technique to make a giant spider nest.
Things you will need:
-Paper mache mix of choice (I used the cheap version - 1 part flour, 5 parts water, boil three minutes)
-A balloon (the bigger the balloon, the bigger the nest!)
-A piece of twine
-black and white spray paint (optional!)
Step 1: Paper Mache
The first step is to blow up the balloon and tie it. Then, classic paper mache style, rip up strips of newspaper to dip in the paste. Apply the strips to the balloon. Repeat until completely covered except for where the tie is (I'm pinching it in the picture below). To help with hanging later, tie the twine into a loop and paste on some more newspaper strips to attach it. There are probably lots of ways to attach the twine, think about where you will hang it and experiment.
