Gorgeous Spider Fascinator! Be the envy of all your friends this Halloween
I wanted to try something a bit different for Halloween this year so after seeing a similar fascinator in my local Remnant Kings, I decided to make one at home

    Take your Sinamay Disc and cut a piece of fabric which is slightly larger than your disc

    Glue down one corner and then stretch the material, gluing the opposite corner. Then work your way round gluing and folding the material in as you go.

    I used a glue gun as it sets quickly and lets you keep working

    OPTIONAL STEP

    I decided that I wanted a glitter finish to my fascinator but you can miss out the next few steps if you don't want the same finish.

    Turn the Disc right side up and cover in a thin coat of glue

    For this I used Mod Podge (you can buy it on ebay/amazon)

    Step 6

    Draw round your disc onto a piece of felt and cut it out.

    Then flip the disc over, put glue round the inner edge and place the felt inside . this covers all your rough material edges from when you glued the outer material on

    For this step, I went back to using the glue gun again.

    Take a thin piece of ribbon and glue round the edge again, sticking on the ribbon as you go. This puts a nice edging on the underside of the fascinator

    Step 8

    Take your comb/clips etc and attach to the disc.

    I decided to use a comb, which I wrapped ribbon round the base and glued both corners to the inside of the disc. I then stitched both sides a few times to improve the durability of the fascinator.

I love this so much! I am going to try and make my own spider with pipe cleaners and fur, maybe wrap the legs in satin. I may add a veil of spiderwebs to go over my face. I love your beautiful necklace also. I made a choker with the bite marks but this is so much more dramatic. Your results are stunning.
