What are you most proud of? The spiders (it was my first attempt)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it

I made the spiders body first so head then body (stick a wire through them to keep them together, legs are gumpaste over angled wires. take about 5 inches of floral wire stick through body, bend with wire cutters/needlenose (so as to bend in segments) then paint all over in a black gel color and vodka mix (for shine), they have the black widow red marking underneath as well :)

this is lovely! if you made the spiders match the size of the tiers(big to small), it would look better dimensionally, I think. but I really like it!
