This Halloween, the pinecones in your backyard get to don a costume. They, and their gum pod friends, are dressing up as Halloween spiders!
Look no further than your backyard for crafting inspiration! These creepy-crawlies are the perfect spooky accent to all of your Halloween decor. No giant Halloween spiderweb is complete without spiders.
Pin pinecones or gum pods onto foam core using t-pins to prevent rolling. Spray-paint black.
Trim two small red or green glass straight pins to 1/4 inch long. Dip the pins' cut ends into crafts glue; insert side by side into a black pom-pom to resemble eyes.
Hot-glue eight 3- to 4-inch lengths of black wire to a pinecone or pod to resemble legs; bend wires into legs. Hot-glue the head to the body.
