HARRY TREATS and a SPOOKY FREEBIE!

Sounds disgusting doesn't it?



But look how cute Harry the spider is on this cupcake. This is one of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's new Halloween stamps.

My son and I did this project together and he is insisting that I help with his school's Halloween party so that we can make these for it. I colored Harry, cut off his little spidery legs and replaced them with pipe cleaners. This was a super quick and easy project and we had a lot of fun icing the cupcakes and putting on the webs just for Harry. How cute is his expression and how inexpensive when you compare it with the cost of ready-made cupcake decorations. You could even have this as an art project that younger kids could easily manage.

Lindsay has several fun new Halloween stamps and a spooktacular FREEBIE this week. Go on a little ghost hunt through the other design team's blogs to get yours.

Oh, I don't know if I could even eat this, I'd be afraid to touch it, it looks so scary! LOL! What a fun project! Love the pipe cleaners as legs. You are so creative! The neat thing about this is that after the cupcakes are eaten, the kids still have a spider to play with!
