Craft: Giant Hairy Spider

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

Everyone will go buggy when they see these cool creepy crawlers all around the crevices of your haunted house!


  • Scissors
  • 4 12-inch-long black bumpy pipe cleaners
  • Tacky glue
  • Disk-shaped magnet, 1 inch in diameter
  • 1 1/2-inch black pom-pom
  • 2 googly eyes


  1. Cut each pipe cleaner in half to create the spider's 8 legs.
  2. Keep the stems straight and use a generous amount of glue to attach the ends of all 8 pieces to the magnet, arranging the pieces in 2 groups of 4.
  3. Apply a small amount of glue to the center of the magnet and attach the pom-pom.
  4. Glue the googly eyes to the pom-pom.
  5. After the glue dries (about 2 hours), bend each pipe cleaner up and back down to create legs. Place in a suitably frightening spot and enjoy.
