Homemade Christmas Gifts

This is totally out of left field as a post on this blog but I decided to share it via this way.
Last year I made these cookie jars for a bunch of people. I'd made a commitment via Facebook to make something home made for 10 of my friends who liked a post and this seemed like a good gift for that. They include the dry ingredients for cookies and you package them up with fabric and ribbon and add a tag with the instructions and bob's your uncle you have a cute, home made gift.

This year I wanted to do something similar so came up with this:

I bundled up a pack of fried noodles, a small jar of peanut butter, some chocolate melts (all the ingredients for chocolate spiders...a recipe on the back of the noodle packet) and put them in a Christmas bowl and wrapped it in a Christmas tea towel so it looked a bit like a plum pudding.

Pretty nifty if I do say so myself.
The actual spider recipe in case it's not on your pack of noodles:
