Pumpkin Candy Jar with Black Spider

This pumpkin candy jar with black spider was made from salsa bottle and no cook play dough. Isn't it good to teach our kids about recycling in a fun way? 

And, if you are looking for Halloween craft ideas it would be a good craft to start with.  

Frankly speaking I don't celebrate Halloween. But the kids in our neighborhood will knock our door for tricks and treats. So I made this candy jar for them.

Step 8:

Make 2 ball shapes from cold porcelain, 1 big and 1 small for body and head of the spider. And then roll 6 skinny spaghetti shape clay for spider's legs.

It's done!
