The toohpick idea I got from Martha Stewart.
Buy a bag of platic spider rings.
Cut the ring part off, just leaving the spider.
Turn the spiders upside down.
Add a dab of hot glue to the middle of the spider and attach a toothpick (you will have to hold it in place for a moment until the glue dries.
Use the spiders to decorate any food platter. I happened to make a fruit platter this year.
I served the fruit with both a white yogurt-based dip and a chocolate dip.
On a few of the strawberries (using a toothpick), I drew simple mouths and eyes.
