Halloween Spider Embellishment

Here's a quick and cheap Halloween embellishment you can use for cards, art, or decorations.
Its funny how you get an idea in your head and then can't get it out! I had this idea to use spider rings as an embellishment for a Halloween flag I was making so off I was in search of them. I figured I'd find them at the dollar store--Wrong! What the heck....I did finally find them at the party store.
I was going to use white glue but then
decided I'd rather use a clear laminate
adhesive instead just because I didn't
want to wait on the glue to dry and
go transparent. I just brushed
on the adhesive.
Then sprinkled with Martha Stewart's
extra fine black glitter.

I tried this on both black and orange
plastic spider. As you can see the orange
one looks looks like one of those hairy tarantula spiders!

Here is is on my finished flag. I also
used my bewitch character and the
freebie web background I posted
previously. The spider ribbon
I found at Target in their dollar
bins and just cut it down the middle.
