Baby Spider Peg

This is Ella the baby spider peg of Bethany.  
I made her by gluing 2 wooden peg heads together and then adding the legs so that it can stand alone horizontally.  The heads I used are smaller than the ones I carry in my shop, which posed a problem for adding the last 2 legs to my baby spider.  I recommend going with the medium and large size heads which will allow enough room for adding all eight legs.  
The texture of Ella's legs come from wrapping the wire in newspaper shreddings.  I like how the black and white text gave her some Nightmare Before Christmas interest to her.  Fun fact...I still haven't seen that movie in it's entirety since my husband can't stand creepiness and my kids get scared walking through Michael's during the Halloween season, so I'm sure that movie is out of the question for them.  

Maybe I'll find some me time this season to see it.
