Project Instructions

Starting at the stem, hot glue the black marabou boa to the pumpkin in a spiral fashion.  Keep the spiral loose so you don't run out of boa before the whole pumpkin is covered.

Keep bowl of ice water nearby in case your skin comes in contact with the hot glue.

Unroll the chenille stem and fold in half, then in half again, and in half one more time to create eight equal lengths. Cut at each fold.

Glue legs to pumpkin and bend into spidery shapes.

Cut eight pieces of green marabou boa, 3" each.

Wrap the green marabou around the legs, at the top where they bend, and hot glue in place. You may want the glue to cool a little before applying the green marabou.

Glue the orange pom poms in place for the eyes.

Glue the green wiggle eyes onto the orange pom poms.
