Halloween Craft: Pipe Cleaner Spiders


Considering I hate spiders, I’m kind of surprised I keep posting about them! But then again handprint spiders and Ritz cracker spiders are a far cry from those I keep having to kill by my sliding glass door! Of course, my seven-year-old keeps telling me not to kill the spiders because they eat the other bugs. No thanks, I’ll just kill those bugs too.

Let’s change the subject. Oh yeah, the subject is spiders. Well, these Halloween spiders I like!

This is what you need to make Pipe Cleaner Spiders:

Black pipe cleaners

Googly eyes



To make these cute Halloween spiders:

1. Tightly coil the end of one pipe cleaner around the tip of your finger three times to create the spider’s head. (Tuck the end of the pipe cleaner inside the head.)

2. Then coil the rest of that pipe cleaner around your finger to create the spider’s body.

3. To make the spider’s legs, cut another pipe cleaners into thirds.

(Unfortunately, these spiders are not anatomically correct because they only have six legs! You’re welcome to try and squeeze eight legs on, but we settled for six.)

4. Bend the three pieces of pipe cleaner into the letter “M” and insert them into the body of the spider.

5. Glue on googly eyes.

Now place these furry little spiders somewhere they won’t get killed by mistake!
