A little felt, a little glue and some spiders
Here is my first 'sewing' project. I made small witches hat invitations.
I had to play with the size a bit until I had it jjjuuuuussstt right. It is about 5" tall. I put a ribbon through the middle so I could hang the invitation and the glue the spider. It took me about an hour to get it right. I figured with cutting it out it would take about 7 minutes per hat and I had to do 16 of them. You do the math.
Then I had to go to Michael's with my 50% off coupon to buy more felt. I found a witches hat streamer with eight 4" hats and a ribbon already through it. I bought two for $3 each. Cut them apart, tied on the invitation and glued on the spider.
Stunningly simpler than the one I made. And just as cute. And no one will know. Shhhhh.....
