How to do it

Follow the easy step-by-step instructions below to create your very own spider this Halloween.
Cover your working area with a drop sheet before starting to protect from any paint spills.

  1. Paint two (2) polystyrene balls with black paint. It is best to use 2 different sizes (the head being smaller).
  2. Apply two (2) coats of paint for good coverage. Allow both coats to dry completely.
  3. Gently insert a toothpick to one of the balls and use this to join the head to the body.
  4. Take two (2) black pipe cleaners and cut each one into four (4) even sized pieces.
  5. Use another toothpick to create small holes in the body where each of the eight (8) legs will be placed. Four (4) on each side.
  6. Place each portion of pipe cleaner into each created hole.
  7. Bend the legs to give some shape.
  8. Stick Joggle Eyes on the face using Elmer’s Glue.

Helpful Hint: Make your spider stand out from the crowd by using different coloured pipe cleaner legs or use EduCraft Bumpy Pipe Cleaners for a furry effect. String can also be used through the body to hang.
