Easy Spider Craft


You’ve seen our cute little spider friend here & here so far.  He’s a super easy friend to make!  All you need are some chenille stems (pipe cleaners), scissors, a glue gun and some googly eyes.  (See, he’s cheap too!)  🙂

Take 2 of your chenille stems & cut them in 1/2.  If you want a tiny spidey, just cut one stem into fourths.  When that’s done, gather all 4 pieces in one hand and start wrapping your other stem around the middle.

I just realized that kinda looks like a dragonfly.  Hmmmm…… Anyway, just keep wrapping your stem around the middle until you get to the end.  This is the body of your spider.  If  you don’t think it’s think enough take another stem & wrap it over the first one.  (That’s what I did.)

Then bend your “legs” into position and stand him up.

Isn’t he cute?  Blind, but cute.  Let’s cure that!

Just grab that glue gun & stick on some googly eyes.  All done!


The girls also suggested adding a little witch hat, but that hasn’t happened  yet.

Hi! I'm Karen & this is my space to relate our remodel adventures. I'm the wife of a (very) patient man, mom to three beautiful teens and one spoiled pooch. My hubby has said (more than once) that even if we bought a brand new home, I'd be repainting it as soon as we moved in. He's right! So come on in & enjoy the fun!
