Spooky Treats for Halloween

Spin these spiderweb bowls from a few simple materials.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1
Cut a 2-foot-square piece of cheesecloth (#125871) found in the paint department.

 

Step 2
Mix two parts wood glue (#41217) with one part water, stirring well. Wearing gloves, dip the cheesecloth into the mixture and then wring it out.

 

Step 3
Press the cheesecloth completely into a 1-quart paint container (#40008), letting the edges drape over the rim. Allow to dry for 24 hours, and then gently remove the dried cheesecloth in the shape of the container.

 

Step 4
Wearing gloves, unroll a piece of steel wool (#40275) found in the paint department. Using utility scissors, cut out a simple spider shape over newspaper or a trash can for easier cleanup. Use wood glue to attach the spider.

 

Step 5
For unwrapped candy, line the inside of the cheesecloth container with plastic wrap.
