Make a bunch of not-too-spooky silly spiders to haunt a Halloween party table. These google-eyed spiders are easy to make and don't require too many art supplies.
What You'll Need:
- Paper egg carton
- Black acrylic paint
- 2 black chenille stems
- 2 wiggle eyes
- Paper punch
- Craft glue
How To Make a Silly Spider:
Step 1: Cut a 2-cup section from the egg carton, trimming the edges neatly. Paint this piece black. Let dry.
Step 2: Punch 4 holes along each side for the legs -- 2 on each side of each cup. Cut 2 chenille stems in half. Thread one piece into one hole and out the hole next to it; pull through until both ends are the same length. Bend them to shape the legs. Repeat with the other 3 chenille stem pieces to make 8 legs total.
Step 3: Glue the wiggle eyes to the front of one of the cups.
