Long-Legged Spider Craft for Halloween

Elicit Halloween shrieks and screams with this oversize spider, made in a few steps with simple supplies.


What You'll Need
  • Plastic foam balls: four 1-1/2-inch, one 2-1/2-inch (We used Styrofoam.)
  • Crafts knife
  • Eight 16-inch-long pieces of wire (Choose black wire if available to prevent need for painting.)
  • Black acrylic crafts paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • 3/8-inch googly eyes
  • Crafts glue
  • Scissors
  • Scrap of orange felt
How to Make It
  1. Cut the 1-1/2-inch foam balls in half with a crafts knife. Paint all the ball pieces and wires black.
  2. Bend the wires about 4 inches from the end to form the knee. Using hot glue, adhere the shorter ends of the wires into the sides of the 2-1/2-inch foam ball, four to each side.
  3. Glue a half ball onto the other end of each wire, making sure the ball sits flat on the tabletop.
  4. Attach googly eyes to the 2-1/2-inch ball with crafts glue. Cut eyebrows and mouth from felt; attach to spider face with crafts glue.
