Pick Me

Add some instant scariness to any item on your table with a DIY topper. Buy spider bling from a party supply store ($5.50 for 144, orientaltrading.com), cut off the rings, and attach to a toothpick with a drop of hot glue. We topped a spiderweb cupcake but you you can stick them in anything from chunks of cheddar cheese to peeled grapes.
