What You'll Need:

  • Small pinecones or sweet gum pods
  • T-pins
  • Foam-core board
  • Flat black spray paint
  • Red or green glass-head straight pins
  • Wire clippers
  • Clear crafts glue
  • Small black pom-poms
  • Hot-glue gun & glue sticks
  • 20- to 22-gauge black wire

Step 1: Make the Body

Pin pinecones or gum pods onto foam core using t-pins to prevent rolling. Spray-paint black.

Step 2: Add the Face

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. 

Step 3: Finish the Spider

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.
