Trim, wash and dry a 4-inch (10-cm) piece from bottom end of celery stalk.
With a vegetable peeler, shave a thin slice off the curved side so celery sits without wobbling.
Fill celery-stick indent with hummus.
Place 2 small pimento-stuffed olives in hummus at wider end of celery stick for eyes; stick 2 thin strips of sweet red pepper just behind eyes for antennae.
Prop a celery leaf in hummus at opposite end of celery stick for a tail.
Make 6 legs from curly pretzels by carefully breaking off 6 long curved pieces; stick legs in hummus along both sides of celery stick.
