Spooky Pipe Cleaner Spiders

Spooky spiders decoration for Halloween from ActivitiesForKids.com

Create these adorable spiders in a few simple steps. Find caps to recycle for different sizes and shapes of spiders for a Halloween decoration. Use colorful pipe cleaners for the legs. You can use a small or large cap from a number of items like hair spray cans, soda bottles, detergent bottles, etc. A great craft for just about any age.

MATERIALS:
  • Black or silver cap (small or large)
  • Craft glue
  • Google eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Cut pipe-cleaners into 2″ to 4″ even pieces (depending on the size of the cap; 2″ for small, 4″ for large). You will need a total of 8 pieces for each spider.
  2. Make a small bend at the end of each pipe cleaner and apply glue to the short end. Press this to the inside of the cap – repeat 8 times, for 4 spider legs on each side.
  3. Allow the 8 legs time to dry.
  4. Once dry, bend and shape the pipe-cleaners to look like legs.
  5. Apply google eyes to the top or front of the cap.
