Having a Halloween party, or just want something fun to adorn your table this season? These friendly spiders are easy to make and fun to look at.

What you'll need:

Styrofoam ball, approximately 4” in diameter
Purple acrylic paint
Sponge applicator
2 large wiggle eyes
Hot glue
9 black chenille sticks
Colorful craft gems OR purple sequins and sequin pins

How to make it:

Using the sponge applicator, paint the entire Styrofoam ball and allow to dry completely.

Use eight of the chenille sticks for legs. To do this, at the bottom of each one, bend into a foot, about 1” long. Bend at the “knee” about halfway up the stick.

When the ball is dry, insert the chenille sticks into the body, four on each side.

Cut the last chenille stick in half, and then cut one of those halves in half again.

Bend the quartered chenille stick to create a “feeler” (officially known as a “palp,” for those budding scientists) about ½” long and place one on either side of the face (on either side of where the mouth would be).

Hot glue the wiggle eyes onto the spider’s face.

Decorate the spider’s back with purple sequins, securing them in place with sequin pins.

Alternatively, especially with younger children, you can glue colorful craft gems to the back instead.

Adjust the legs so that the spider stands on its own.
