Spider Themed Birthday Party

I know it seems like a weird time of the year to be posting about spiders, but my oldest son had a birthday just before Christmas and he wanted a spider theme and I thought I would share what I did.

He saw this Oreo Spider Cake while I was surfing the web one day and told me that he wanted that for his birthday cake.  So I ATTEMPTED to come close to making a cake that resembled it.
 I made cut out some spiders with my Cricut and strung them onto fishing line then hung them in the entrance to our kitchen.  My boys loved it.
 I made this banner with my Cricut as well and used some more spiders.
 Here is a party hat I made for my birthday boy.  I cut of the ring part of a plastic ring spider and used glue dots to stick them to the hat.
 I did the same thing to the other hats for our party guests.  I put purple spiders on the hats for the girls and we had a couple of babies so I made them smaller hats.
 I used black and white paper plates, cups, and napkins.  I didn't get a picture of it, but my son also wanted to play a pin the leg on the spider game so we did that.  It was a lot of fun.  Although, it did look rather strange next to all of our Christmas decorations.  I guess he should have been an October baby.
