We had just cleaned out grapevines in the backyard, so I thought, I should make something. Spiders came to mind for Halloween. I cut the lengths I wanted, nailed them to a piece of 2x4 and stuffed a black trashbag and nailed it on top. Glitter for the eyes. Large spiders in the yard, spoooky.
This quick and easy craft uses minimal materials and is such a cute representation of your little one's hand prints. We made ours to hang up for decorations during a buggy birthday party, but this can work just as good a spring craft, as well as, a Halloween craft.
- black paint
- paint brush
- googly eyes
- Paint one of your child's hands all over, leaving out the thumb.
- Press onto the paper, fingers facing the outside edge of the paper, to make one side of the spider.
- Clean up this hand and repeat with the other hand.
- Allow to dry.
- Glue on googly eyes.

Here's a quick and easy project your kids will love. Use the pencils as party favors or to make homework less of a chore.
Crafting Time: approximately 30 minutes
- pencil - old or new
- two 12 inch black pipe cleaners
- black pom-poms - 1, 1 inch and 1, 1/2 inch for each spider
- two small wiggle eyes
- thick craft tacky glue or a low-temp glue gun to be used with adult assistance
- Cut 4, 4 inch pieces of black pipe cleaner.
- Glue the center of each piece to the eraser of a pencil to create eight legs.
- Wrap the rest of the eraser end in the remaining piece of black pipe cleaner and glue the pipe cleaner into place.
- Glue a 1 inch black pom-pom to the top of the pencil for the spider body.
- Glue the 1/2 inch black pom-pom to one side of the body to make a head.
- Glue wiggle eyes to the head.
- Bend the pipe cleaner pieces to shape the legs and feet.

This small clay dish, bead, and chenille stems transform into a cute, mini spider with a body you can fill with candy! Great for Halloween parties.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes without drying time
- clay dish - 3 inches
- round bead - around 1-2 inches
- orange chenille stem - 2 - 18 inches long
- googly eyes - 2 - 1/2 inch
- craft glue
- black paint
- Turn your dish upside down and cover it with black paint. Let the paint dry. Turn the dish around again, so that it's facing the right way. Finish painting the dish black, making sure to get the inside and rim, as shown in the "Step 1" picture. Paint ball black. Let the paint dry.
- Fold your chenille stem in half evenly and cut. Repeat with other stem. Take the four stem halves and fold *them* into half evenly. Cut the stems. You should now have 8, small, even, orange stems.
Make a small loop at the end of each orange stem, as shown in the "Step 2" picture. This is the spider's "foot" at the end of each "leg".
- The foot should go flat against the floor, with the leg arching up, then back down to slip under the spider's body. Use some craft glue to secure the legs to the spider's body. Place four legs on each side, coming from, under the spider, as shown in the "Step 3" picture. Bend each stem like a spider's leg, as shown in the "Step 3" picture.
- Glue googly eyes to black bead. Glue the head to front of body, as shown in the finished project picture. Let glue dry.
- Fill your dish with candy or other goodies and set out for guests.
