Along Came A Spider Headband

Little Miss Muffett sat on a tuffet eating her curds and whey.
When along came a spider and sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away. 

 However, this Little Miss decided the spider would look fabulous on a headband!

My kids aren't allowed to wear their Halloween costumes to school, but can maybe get away with wearing this headband.
Or maybe I will wear it myself!

It was a perfect project to make for my Craft Lightning post today, hosted by Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts,  since it took only 15 minutes.

There will be 15 minute Halloween projects linked up all week. It started yesterday, so head on over to see more!
Would you like to make a spider headband in 15 minutes, too?
Here's how:
 I made this headband from a plastic spider and headband I bought at the 99 cent store and some ribbon from the hobby shop.
I used some little scraps of felt and my glue gun to put it together.
 I cut the felt into little ovals the same size as the spider body.
 From the ribbon, I cut two 2 inch pieces.
 I glued them to the bottom of the headband.
 I wrapped about two yards of ribbon around the headband, gluing down at both ends.
I glued down one piece of felt to the spider's body.
Then I sandwiched the headband in between the other piece of felt, which I glued .
