How to make Halloween Spiders
What you will need for this craft:
3 craft sticks (large or regular size)
1 chenille stem (pipe cleaners)
yarn (12 inches)
2 google eyes
tape or glue
- Tape or glue your craft sticks together as shown. First make a cross with 2 sticks and then add the 3rd stick to make a star shape for the spider web. I always use Elmer’s Xtreme Glue. It’s strong and dries fast, plus it’s safe for kids.
2. Secure the yarn on one of the craft sticks, either use tape, glue, or tie it around the stick. Have your child wrap the yarn around the sticks in a web-like pattern. One way to do this is to wrap the string around one end of a stick and let it cross over to the next craft stick. Repeat until it looks like a web. There’s no perfect way to do it, just let your kids enjoy the process.
3. Cut your pipe cleaner or chenille stem into 3 or 4 pieces. If you cut into 4 pieces the legs will be shorter but there will be 8 legs. 3 pieces will make 6 legs, but they will be longer. Then take the stems and wrap them around each other 1 time so they look like legs. See picture. Bend the ends of each leg so it looks rounded like a spider leg.
The legs are simply wrapped around each other.
4. Glue the pom pom on for the head and glue on the google eyes and let dry. Place it on your spider web and have fun playing with it!
