First, I found the branch. I tried to stain it.. looked awful. Paint it brown.. awful...finally black..ok.
I cut out the web shaped stand on my scroll saw, and wood burned the web onto it, and stained it. I attached the branch to the stand with a wood screw.
I then tied the tatted web, I had already made, onto the branch. The spider is just hanging on by her feet! I really love how that shiny floss (one strand added) looks like she is totally beaded! It is a great affect.

Ok, so, you may have guessed my 'theme' for this Halloween is spiders. I have the large knitted one on my dog-goneknit page, I am knitting a purse with one, and I have created this little guy. He is about 2½" long, legs and all. He is 3D tatting, of course. He is made from some thread I got at the Lace day, which just screamed "Halloween"!
His legs are memory thread, which I also got at the Lace day. I am thinking of making them to sell on Etsy. We shall see.
I also have finished his big Sister, who will have her own web and stand.. but she will be revealed later when all completed. (I have to finish the stand). Until then...enjoy this little taste of Halloween!
