I hope you like Creepy things because these spider doll heads are all that!
I was inspired a little bit from Toy story 2 where the mutant toys come out from under Sid's bed- you remember the doll head? Yea, that one....
Then also a little bit of inspiration from Pirates of The Caribbean 2- when Jack Sparrow was the village king, remember his eye's?
You will need:
- 3 Smoothfoam 2 1/8" Baby Heads Smooth off the ridges with medium grade sandpaper.
- Neon Folk Art paints in Green, Purple and Orange. - I found these in Walmart.
- Gloss Luster Mod Podge
- White and Black acrylic paint
- Metallic Chenille stems
- Fine glitter
- Googly eyes
- Craft sheet, double stick take, tacky glue, (3) 3" pieces of 26 gauge wire, foam brush, a fine tipped paint brush, plastic cups, plates, tooth picks and a extra foam block.
Do this for all the colors.
Coat doll heads with Mod Podge then hold over a cup while you sprinkle glitter.
Pour excess glitter back into container.
Place in foam block to set.
Gather all 4 chenille stems and fold in half. Then twist them a few times in the middle and add some double stick tape.
Go over each doll head with one more coat of Mod Podge to seal in the glitter.
When they are no longer sticky, carefully attach the legs.
Place some tacky glue onto bottom of the doll head and add your spider legs.
Bend the wire piece into a "U" shape and push into the doll bottom around the tape.
When the wire is half pushed in, twist, then push into the tape as shown. This helps secure the legs.
Paint extra eyes or designs with the black and white acrylic paint.
Don't forget to add the fangs!
Bend the legs as shown.
Don't the eyes totally creep you out?
Plus I love purple!
