skeleton spider centerpieces

what do you do when you only have a few dollars to spend on halloween centerpieces?
you raid the dollar tree and pick up some unsuspecting victims.

like these:
look at that unsuspecting skeleton.
he looks so content.

so let's get these at the dollar tree.
and do this to the skeleton base:
but wait!
OH MY GOSH!
GET IT OFF OF ME!

ARGH! ARGH!

i gotta put him someplace! 
here, i'll try this:
OH NO!
THERE'S MORE SPIDERS!
GET 'EM OFF OF ME!!!!

oh wait, i found a place for them.
uh oh i think someone's freaking out.

better them than me i say!

and i say that only cuz lately i've had so much on my plate that i'm walking around like this:
yikes!
