Halloween is my favorite holiday because you get to decorate with things like eyeballs and plastic spiders.
What you'll need to make your own spidery eyeball topiary:
First, decorate your pot (I used ribbon and double sided tape):
Your styrofoam cone should fit into the bottom of your pot once it's trimmed, and you can make the hole with your wooden dowel:
Cut the bottoms of the spider rings so they're all sharp and jabby:
Jab the spider rings into your styrofoam ball, but leave spots for the eyeballs, and dig a little pit with your spoon so the eyeballs will fit in the styrofoam a little deeper:
Make a hole in the eyeball with a thumbtack and then stick a toothpick in the hole so that it fits snugly:
Jab the eyeballs into the pits, and then put spiders around them so it looks like the spiders are crawling on the eyeballs (mwahahaha):
Stick the wooden dowel into the bottom of the styrofoam ball:
Put your heavier "stuff" on top of the styrofoam cone in the pot, I used rocks, you can use anything that will add some weight so your topiary won't fall over:
Put candy corn on top of your heavy stuff and tie a ribbon around the dowel:
Eyeballs are fun. I mean, spiders are great too, as long as they're plastic and not real and creepy and in my house. But I just really like eyeballs.
