Halloween Black Spider
I'm not fond of being scared but I sure do enjoy some of the Halloween decorations. The easier the better, and if it's creative, even better.
I was driving back from visiting a friend in Dixon, Missouri and chuckled when I spotted this black spider in a field. Sharing a name with a spider, Charlotte in E.B. White's Charlotte's Web, I am not particularly scared of spiders. Actually I find them very fascinating, especially the fall garden spiders I have all around my garden.
I couldn't help but wonder, though, at friends who are not as enamored of these interesting insects as I am. One was sharing a black spider she found in her garden last night at a neighborhood meeting, discussing the different kinds of tarantulas she had seen in her life.
To find a spider this big in one's garden would definitely be startling, if not scary.
So easy to make. A bale of hay, some black moldable plastic pipe and spray paint. Very clever!
