I’ve always loved my murder mysteries and one of my favorite character-types is the black widow. I’m fascinated by the mystique and absolute evilness of her. If you’re looking for an easy Halloween costume, grab a black dress from your closet, make my Black Widow Fascinator, and you’re ready to go.
For this project, you will need:
- two pieces of black felt
- black tulle
- Cricut Explore (It is completely possible to cut the shapes by hand.)
Iron interfacing onto both pieces of felt. If you’re using the Cricut, load up your first piece of felt and cut out a spider. With the second piece of felt, cut out a spiderweb. I made both shapes around 9 inches long.
Get your needle and thread. Place the spider where you want it on the web and make a few stitches to connect them.
Get your tulle and cut it into three roughly five inch pieces. Place the three pieces with roughly an inch overlap. (I did it this way because my spool of tulle was narrow. If you have a wider tulle, go ahead and use one piece.)
Pinch the top of the tulle together and stitch it.
Stitch the tulle onto the head of the spider.
Take your headband and slip it through the spiderweb. You shouldn’t need to attach it in any other way.
You are all set to seek out your prey as the Black Widow.
