Halloween Spider Dirt Cups

Happy Halloween! Whether you go all out for the holiday or like to keep things simple, these spider dirt cups are the perfect way to add a bit of spooky fun to your day. Since Ian and I are in the phase of life where we don’t have any little ones to go trick-or-treating with, our Halloween celebrations are quite mild. Therefore, to get us in the holiday spirit I made a small batch of these creepy crawly dirt cups.

After a long day at work, these spider dirt cups can turn an ordinary evening into a mini Halloween party. Just put on Hocus Pocus and you are set! Your spooky evening is sorted! However, if you are looking to spice up your Halloween celebrations and throw a party these spider dirt cups would be a wonderful addition to your dessert table. Guests can even wear the spider rings after they enjoy their dessert! Can you really ask for more from a Halloween dessert?! I don’t think so!

DIY Halloween Spider Wall Hang

DIY Halloween Spider Wall Decoration

Last weekend I was tiding up the house when I realized – it was the middle of October and I hadn’t put up our Halloween decorations! I quickly ran to the closet, teetered on top of a chair, and pulled down our holiday box. As I placed jack-o-lantern votives and pumpkins around the apartment it started to feel more festive – but something was missing.

All of our decorations were displayed on tabletops and failed to bring interest to our walls. As I contemplated how to solve this, an idea popped into my head! So I asked Ian to go on a walk with me so I could search for twigs.

Ian, being the sweetest husband, agreed to help me look for twigs. We parted ways and when we met back up he had a whole arm full of sticks! After sorting through our piles, I selected one that I thought would be perfect.

Once we got home I wrapped yarn around the stick, trimmed it into a V-shape, and twisted glittered spiders on the yarn to make a quick and easy Halloween DIY wall hang!
