A dollar store hauntingly easy craft project

On a recent trip to the dollar store I was perusing the isles and came across some plastic bowls and cups that were 50% off the original price of $1.00. I was in a bit of a Halloween mood and liked the purple color of the pieces and knew they would make a good project.
I also grabbed a package of 2 big ugly spiders and headed home

I glued the bottoms of the cup and bowl together and then glued on the spiders. Now all this needs is some Halloween treats and it's ready to go. Not bad for a $2.00 project

  3. Not sure how the dollar compares with the £1.00 but it sounds really cheap, I love the purple would look good with green grapes in it.

  12. Okay, that's it, I gotta go to Dollar Tree and see it with new eyes! I never find 'treasures' like that or maybe it's just that I don't see what they can become.
