I'm so glad that Debbie Doos is now planning to have her
Magazine Copy Cat Party once a month.
I have always enjoyed participating and it makes
reading my magazines even more enjoyable as I
am now on the lookout for a good project to
copy cat for upcoming party entries.
I found this magazine copy cat project in the
latest issue of Goose Berry Patch's
"Best of Halloween".
With their glass domes, these upside down jars
remind me of cloches.
I painted the lids of my jars black to make them
look more like a specimen jar in a laboratory.
Then I built my spider display using moss, sticks,
plastic spiders and Halloween spider webbing
on the inverted jar lid.
Here are the individual specimen jars...
The magazine picture had the jars on a tray
so I put mine on the only tray I had on hand.
I was disappointed in the late afternoon photos I took of
my copy cat project inside so I took a few more
pictures outside the next morning.
I think the tray kind of overwhelms the critter cloches...too deep of a tray and too much moss...
live and learn.
Update: The spider cloches were used as part of a
larger Halloween vignette:
Getting ready for tricker or treaters in Skeleton/Spider/Snake/Skull Display.
I took the critter cloches off the mossy tray and onto a large candle holder for this display.
I am sharing the critter cloches at Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing
Magazine Copy Cat Challenge.
