  • Halloween fun!

What You Need:

  • 1 toilet paper tube
  • sharp knife to cut ends off tube
  • 8 long twist ties (paper so they can be painted)
  • 2 beads or marbles or buttons for eyes
  • paint (my spiders are black)
  • string (to hang spider)
  • hot glue gun or preferred type of glue
  • (a glue gun is faster and you don't need to wit to paint it)
  • black tape of paintable tape for securing legs

What You Do:

  1. Take a toilet paper tube, cut two round pieces off the end. These are the eyes.

  2. Glue them on the end of the rest of the tube right at one of the edges.

  3. Then along each side where you want to put the legs poke 8 holes.

  4. Poke twist ties into holes and secure inside with black tape or tape that can be painted on.

  5. Paint your spider, let dry.

  6. Buttons or beads or marbles could make the eyes.

  7. Attach a string from the back, arrange the legs to your liking and there you have a wide eyed kooky spider.
