Fun for Halloween and something to do with those leftover pantyhose!

I was at Wal*Mart looking around, when I saw some bouncy balls with spiders inside of them. I thought they would look pretty cool if there was some way to string them into a necklace or choker, when, while at home, I came across some black nylons, and this idea occurred to me. I think it turned out great and I got a lot of compliments on it. I've been wearing it a few times throughout this month, and it goes great with a T-shirt and one of my grey sweatercoats I wear periodically. =D

It is a little heavy, but I don't think it's too terribly heavy. I used smaller sized bouncy balls, and I think b/c they are filled with plastic spiders instead of just solid rubber, that seems to make them lighter.

Ok, let me apologize upfront for this how-to. There were a lot of errors when I was trying to publish this, and it apparently didn't save the last draft, so Step 3 is missing. All Step 3 was supposed to say was to stretch out the nylon a bit, and to tie a knot a few inches from one end of the nylon tube. Sorry for any confusion. I'm also not sure why the main picture didn't post, either! Grrr...
