A Halloween Scararrium of course!!
This little faux-terrarium usually resides in the guest room but I thought it deserved a place front and centre as my dining room table centerpiece!
I had the glass structure for quite sometime, sitting around collecting dust when I had the idea about a year ago to add the faux succulents and some moss. It adds a touch of nature to the guest bedroom!
All I purchased for this craft was a small bag of spiders from Michaels. They have their Halloween and Autumn décor items on sale already, so it's a perfect time to stock up on stuff!! You could really add a ton of different creepy/crawly items to this for something fun, but my goal was super simple. I chose a bag of Large Spiders, but you could go with smaller and see if it takes people a while I find them!
All I did was pop open the terrarium and nestle the spiders in the moss.
A few enjoyed climbing around on the succulent pots.
I also wanted to have some climbing up the sides of the glass, so I grabbed some Glue Dots from my craft room and hung a few spiders up!
You can see the glue dot stretched out in the below shot. Which I love! I think it kinda looks like the start of a web! :)
I made sure NOT to dust or use glass cleaner on the case before starting. I also didn't wipe off the smudgy finger prints. I think it adds a little "Halloween" character to the terrarium. I also didn't straighten up the succulent pots that were slightly tipped over. I like to think the spiders caused that....
It's looking pretty good on the dining table! I think it will be a fun little addition to the main floor for the next couple weeks!
I can't wait to have people over and see their reactions!
It's definitely been a hit with those of the feline variety...
This cute little craft took less than 5 minutes to pull together and cost about $2.00 for the bag of spiders! What do you think of my new Halloween centerpiece?
