The Spider Rug I Made for My Best Pal

My friend’s previous spider rug fell victim to her dog’s diarrhea and though she was willing to wait until All Hallow’s Eve and buy another, I thought that having to step from a nice warm shower onto a cold tile floor for two months would be barbaric.
So I made her this. The spiders are painted and the webs are embroidered.

I did an image search for 'spider sihouette'

When paint dried I tossed it in the dryer to set the acrylic paint
