What You Need

Make It

  1. To assemble each spider, insert a skewer through a large crafts-foam ball and then into a small crafts-foam ball.
  2. Cover your work surface and thoroughly spray the assembled spider with paint. Let dry and spray again if needed.
  3. Insert corsage pins into the small ball for the eyeballs.
  4. For the legs, insert 4 chenille stems into each side of the spider body. Bend each leg at a 90-degree angle approximately halfway down the length of the chenille stem. Bend the tip of each chenille stem to create the feet.
  5. Cut an 8-inch length of wire for each spider and bend the wire in half; twist the wire several times to form a loop.
  6. Insert the ends of the wire into the top of the spider's body.
  7. Thread a hanging cord through the loop.
