Haunted Prop for July 30, 2014:

Create an impressive, realistic looking spider
victim cocooned in a giant spider web!

Chicken Wire
Wig head
Battery-operated hand that moves
Inside of a discarded comforter
Joint compound
Black and green paint

Step 1. Using PVC pipes and joints, create a structure to hang from the ceiling or a tree with a rope. (You will have to tie the rope securely around the PVC pipes.)

Step 2. Attach the wig head and mask to the PVC pipe. I used duct tape to secure the mask to the wig head.

Step 3. Take chicken wire and wrap it around to create a cocoon.

Step 4. Put the (moving) hand outside the chicken wire and run the wire through the inside and out the back. (You'll want to be able to turn the hand on and off and change the batteries after you complete the structure.)

Step 5. Take the padding from inside a comforter (batting) and wrap it around the chicken wire. Secure it with string. (I used fishing wire which is transparent).

Step 6. Take some joint compound and mix it with some black paint. (I added some green paint because most of the spider's eggs around my house seem to be greenish in color.)

Step 7. Take a paint brush and apply the "Monster Mud" over the padding. It will dry to a lighter color.

Step 8. After it dries, apply spiderwebs all over the form. Attach spiders with a hot glue gun.

Step 9. Once you hang it outside, be sure to add more spiderwebs to the area surrounding the victim. Add a giant spider nearby.

Step 10. If you don't have a moving hand, use a strobe light to make it look like the victim s moving.
