Crawly Halloween Spider Swizzle Sticks

Hello, crafty people! Lindsay here from Shrimp Salad Circus again, and I’m still on a mega Halloween kick. I’ve been planning party decorations and costumes for way too long already for it to only be mid-September… This project, a tutorial for Halloween spider swizzle sticks, is really so easy it almost shouldn’t have its own tutorial, but sometimes, during our busiest times, those are the best sorts of projects, right? Plus, you can put it together with this and this, and you’re well on your way to a killer Halloween party!

Spider Swizzle Stick for HalloweenWhat You Need to make your own Halloween spider swizzle sticks:

Remember, I said this was so easy it almost shouldn’t have its own tutorial. Remember that when you need something fantastic for your Halloween party at the last minute, okay?

1.   Get two little rhinestones, and you may also want to use tweezers or jewelry pliers. Using a tiny dot of hot glue, bedazzle the heck out of the spider’s eyes. It’s Halloween. There’s no such thing as too much bling. Even if the rhinestones are sticky, go ahead and use a bit of glue. You don’t want a rhinestone falling into somebody’s martini…

2.   Take a swizzle stick and a spider. Squeeze a big, fat dollop of hot glue onto the spider’s tummy. Immediately squish it onto the end of the swizzle stick so that it looks like it’s standing on top of it. Hold it there for about 20 seconds.

3.   Hold it up to your glass to gauge how long you’ll need it to be.

4.   Using regular scissors, snip off the bottom. Test it out in your glass, and snip off more if needed.

5.   Mix up a Halloween cocktail of some sort, and drop in a spider swizzle stick for effect. Enjoy!
