How to Make Your Spiders Happy

Just eleven days to party time this year, and we've barely started decorating! We've had some issues getting new carpet in (it won't be installed until next Monday - eek!), and it's been a bit slow starting because of that. But we're moving now, and tonight it was time to make the spiders a cozy home.

First, of course, they needed a welcoming environment. Enter the webs!
Ignore my socks there. This is a work in progress, after feet were hot! 
Once the webs are in place, it's time to set the spiders. But be sure to put the biggest ones out first. They get jealous otherwise...

Then it's time to put the medium spiders out. They normally like to hang around, so I hook 'em up with curtain rods and whatever shelving I can find. 

I have a little dropping spider - his specialty is "Boo!". He'll need to hang...somewhere spooky for the party, but for now, this hook will do. 

Then it's time for the tiny spiders - they're happy just hanging out on the counter top, which is handy. Now we're almost done...
Still, I feel like I'm forgetting something. But what? 

Oh, right. Food! Don't forget to leave your spiders a nice big snack. Wouldn't want them to get hungry and start munching on party guests now, would we? 

I think we can safely say that the spiders are happy now. :-) 
What's next? I'm not sure. It may or may not involve skeletons...

  1. Wonderful!! I'm so glad you get all spooky for Halloween. Saves the rest of us the trouble of actually doing it ourselves. :)
