NBC style spider snowflakes

Postby Zombie Pumpkins! » Sun Dec 14, 2008 11:13 am

Haven't you always wanted to make "spiderflakes" like the ones Jack accidentally created in The Nightmare Before Christmas?

I have. So I did:

And so can you. Print out this PDF file, follow the cutting directions, and spin some spiderflakes.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. :twisted:

They look brilliant! I am downloading the pdf as we speak.

I reckon if you print 5 off onto fairly stiff card, glue edge to edge and glitter thenyou can have the perfect tree topper due to it's star shape

Those are really cool Ryan!

Actually, the spider fits in with Christmas more than people think. There are a few different versions of the Christmas Spider but I believe this is the original... http://familycrafts.about.com/cs/treeor ... dstory.htm

When we were kids, our mum and dad used to cover the entire tree with this white, floss stuff that always looked as if the tree was covered in spiders web.

It used to make the Christmas tree lights shimmer really nicely but we all hated it because it was really obvious when you'd taken a chocolate ornament off the tree because of the holes in the web.

I wonder if that's how they came up with the idea for the stuff?

Those look wonderful! I wonder if we could start a whole new section of Zombie Pumkpkin cut outs. How about pumpkins cut out in the same style as a chain of paper dolls?

I know what NBC stands for, but I have to admit that my mind always goes to the TV channel first before it goes to the movie. That has made for some confusing moments as I try to find out why you are making Peacock snowflakes.

These are really awesome Ryan!. What I found really funny about this scene, is that the angles and amount of cuts that he makes doesnt add up to that. I have tryed thats how I know. I just found that to be a neat little fact for you guys. :)
