Incy Wincy Spider Headband

CJ was the Flower princess at the school fall festival and so I thought it would be fun if she dressed up something different for the Halloween costume contest at the library. But an inexpensive one! "Incy Wincy Spider" - her costume was a shirt and pant with spider pictures(we got them from WALMART) and she carried the Hula Hoop spider web. To make it more spidery, I made her a Spider headband.
Pipe cleaner Spider headband

The spider is the same one from the Hula Hoop spider web post. I cut his legs short and put girl wiggly eyes. We made the pipe cleaner spider using the Tutorial - Fuzzy stick spiders on Craftprojectideas.com. Since the body of spider is twisted pipe cleaners, I just slipped in the headband on the back of the spider as shown in the picture below. The spider can be hot glued to the headband too. But I wanted to use the headband without the spider too so I preferred the removable one.
