Spiders are creepy and crawly and oh so fun for Halloween. This Halloween Spiders Craft has all the legs of the kind of spider we’d usually avoid, and is even kind of colorful, too! It’s OK, though, because googly eyes make these spiders not scary or creepy at all.
Plus, it’s Halloween! You’re allowed to spook just a little bit.
To make our Halloween Spiders Craft, you will need craft sticks, both large and small for both large and small spiders. You’ll also need googly eyes, black poms large and small, and a hot glue gun. If using plain wooden craft sticks, acrylic paints for color will also be needed.
- 4 large green wooden craft sticks
- 4 large purple wooden craft sticks
- 8 small orange wooden craft sticks
- 4 large googly eyes
- 4 small googly eyes
- 2 medium black poms
- 2 large black poms
- hot glue gun
Using the hot glue gun, put a dot of glue in the middle of a green stick and press another green stick on top of it, but make sure it is turned slightly. It will look like a very wide “x”. Glue another green stick on top of that one and slightly turn it again. Finish with the fourth stick and slightly turn it. It should look like you have 4 legs coming out from each side of the center.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other craft sticks so that you have 4 spiders. Then, glue the 2 large poms in the middle of each set of large craft sticks and glue the 2 medium poms in the middle of each set of smaller craft sticks. Glue 2 eyes on each pom.
And I’m officially excited for Halloween! Be sure to check out more of our Halloween craft and fun recipe ideas at Our Kid Things!
