I love decorating for the holidays. But, do you want to know what really makes me ADORE this time of year? My oldest son’s squeal-worthy excitement when we get the boxes out of the attic. He has so much love for the cheap plastic pumpkins and strings of orange lights.
I can only hope that look on his face never changes. But, it will. I know it will. So, NOW is the time to make Halloween and the rest of these holidays count.
So, back to Pinterest, I saw this crazy cool idea on there about a month ago. I pinned it. THIS I wanted to try.
According to the link, these spiders are available at Walgreens. So, this morning, I got up and took my 6 year old up to our closest Walgreens. Sure enough, there they were. Not quite as big, and we didn’t get as many at that size (the biggest we could find were $9.99 each). But we got a bunch in a variety of sizes and brought them home.
My husband, being SUCH A FRICKING TROOPER, got up on the roof, in the beating hot Florida sun, and proceeded to gently hammer the legs of these creatures (we used small nails, nothing damaging) into our roof while I directed from the ground.
“Make sure they are LOOKING at us! OK? OK?!!!”
I have to say. It looks pretty amazing. (And I don’t think the pictures do it enough justice, either.)
Recommendations: This was a Pinterest WIN.
My only concern? Weather. Fingers crossed hurricane season really IS just about over… heh.
