Paint your half-ball with the silver acrylic paint. This may take a few coats to get it really shiny. Let dry in between coats.

Spray paint your candle holder silver, let dry, then glue your bowl to the top of the candle holder. Let the glue completely set before the next step.

Glue the small spiders to the outside of the bowl and candle holder. Glue the medium spider to the inside bottom of the bowl.
