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.
