day 129: spider straws

halloween straws :)
day 129 and it's a BIG day for new zealander's today ... the all blacks play in the semi finals of the rugby world cup against australia!  as such, my focus was not so much on pinterest but more focused on rugby and getting ready for tonights game :)  so today's creation is a really simple one, but one i never would have thought to do.

i loved the idea of these spider straws as soon as i saw them on pinterest and immediately pinned them to my holiday goodness board.  the inspiration comes from no biggie and her guest post by amy from a little of this and a little of that for her annual witch party. the photos of the witches are amazing and i absolutely loved all the things she did to make her party so special.  again, it was one of those really simple ideas but its the little things that make you go aww and people know you care and have put thought and love into things for them to enjoy.

all you need are some straws and plastic spiders. i have chosen to adhere the spiders with hot glue.  and that's it, that is all you need to know!

the lovely hand of my helpful 7 year old assistant!

the finished product!

outcome: can't vouch for the peeps but i definitely want my halloween drinks using one of these spooky looking straws ;)  fun things like these straws are why i LOVE the festive seasons so much ... yip total kid at heart me :)

my thanks to kami at no biggie and amy from a little of this and a little of that for this super cute idea.  i am a total believer in effort going a long way and these girls clearly put in a lot of effort into their crafts, family, and friends ... and i adore that :)
