We're generally not huge fans of spiders—especially in our drinks—but we're loving these DIY Halloween-themed spider drink charms. The two-step project, dreamed up by celebrity event planner David Stark, who has helped stars like Brad Pitt and Mariska Hargitay prep for parties, is a fun, festive way to spruce up an ordinary drink tag—the unsung hero at any party—and also doubles as a cute take-home souvenir. What's more, the tutorial can be used to create tchotchkes for any holiday or special occasion. So depending on how skilled you are with scissors, the sky's the limit.

3. PUT 'EM IN THE OVEN
Following the instructions on the packaging, bake the spiders in your toaster or conventional oven. (If this is your first time working with Shrinky Dinks, don't be surprised to see them curl, they typically flatten out as they continue to heat and shrink.) Once cool, use the white paint marker to add your pals' names, "hook" 'em onto a glass, and serve it on a silver spider web tray.
