Forget the traditional balloon weight to hold down your balloons this Halloween, and go for a spider instead! And make it a pom-pom spider while you’re at it! This kit from Martha Stewart makes these cute little guys in minutes.
These little pom-pom spiders are just heavy enough to hold down a 9″ helium balloon indoors (outdoors they will “crawl” away in the breeze!). Add them to the end of a balloon and you have yourself an easy peasy Halloween centerpiece. I placed mine on top of these Martha Stewart spider webs to make them look like they are crawling on their webs.
The kit comes with everything you need to make the spiders, from precut and scored tissue paper to lots of googly eyes. It was news to me, but spiders can have up to 12 eyes! Leave it to Martha to make her spiders more accurate than the two-eyed spiders in most Halloween decor. 😉
