Thank you Kaeleen! Now this is one spider that doesn’t make me want to jump a few feet high and run the other way squealing. I love your Itsy Bitsy Spider and can’t wait to make one or two. This is also another great hair accessory that can quickly be turned into a fun embellishment for a festive top, scarf or your favorite fall jacket. Instead of gluing your cute spider to a clip, simply glue it to a Brooch Pin found on our Hardware page. It doesn’t matter how you were this cute spider, you will love it and so will all that see her!

Halloween hair accessories are some of my favorite to look at and to make. The festive ribbon is adorable and so fabulous for this time of year. Here are a few more festive hair accessories you are sure to think are spooooooktacular.

    Aww, what a sweet spider! I think she’d even look adorable perched on top of a mantel, or an indoor decorative pumpkin! Thanks for the cute idea, Kaeleen! x0x0
