I wish I had started this earlier in the year and had some flowering vines to soften the effect. Pretty creepy, otherwise.

OK Sprout ----- you made me "SOOOOOooooooo Jealous " !!!!

It's so funny - in Real Life - I hate spiders ... but in the shape of something artsy fartsy - I love them . I especially love yours ! ( are the legs welded to the body ? )

TMG, I HATE spiders, too. I guess this is how I am facing my fear. (lol)

Hubby drilled holes for the legs, inserted rebar legs and then bolted them on the inside of the body (bowl). He reinforced them by welding on the outside, where the legs insert.

I'm with TMG, I'm not very fond of real spiders (except when they eat even more annoying bugs!) but I really like your gal. How big is she? And she would be fabulous for Halloween!

RE: Garden junk spider

Not sure how big it is. My guess would be about 4-5 feet across. I'll have to measure it.
