Easy DIY Spider | A Complete How-To Guide
I wasn't going to decorate for Halloween this year. I just wanted to dive deep into Fall and pumpkins! It's the first Halloween in our new home and my sister will be over... and it is her birthday. I decided to go with a spider theme outdoors and because I am a crafter/DIYer at heart, I just had to make the decor.
These spiders were SO easy to make and inexpensive. Just wait to see how we use them outside!

Step #2 - Attach Foam Balls with Wooden Skewer
Step #3 - Spray Paint Time
Note: I used an extra wooden skewer to help prop up the foam balls for painting.
Step #4 - Make the Legs
Twist together three pipe cleaners. I use three because it makes the legs thicker and more noticeable... you can use as many as you'd like, though.
Step #5 - Fasten the Legs to the Body
Poke the legs into the foam ball, inserting at least 1/4" into the styrofoam. Remember, spiders have 8 legs!
Quick, Easy Spiders!
Just wait to see how we use them in our outdoor decor! You can find all the supplies you need HERE.
