halloween spider craft - CQ Nation

Looking for a fun craft to do before Halloween?

I have just the thing for you.

These fun and silly spiders are a great project for kids of all ages.

Here is what you will need:

Supplies for halloween spider craft

  • Styrofoam Balls. Buy half circles if your craft store has them.  If not, cut them in half. Make sure a grown up cuts these.  Kinda tricky.
  • Googly Eyes
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Black Paint
  • White Puffy Paint
  • Glue

Here is what you need to do:

  • This could get messy, so lay down newspaper or something similar in your work station.
  • Start by painting your Styrofoam black.

  • You will want to give them time to dry after you paint them.
  • Once the paint is dry it is time to insert the legs.

  • We found that by poking a hole in the Styrofoam with a pencil first, made inserting the pipe cleaner easier.

  • Next, it is time for the eyes.  Just use regular white glue.
