DIY Halloween Giant Spider Craft

DIY Halloween Giant Spider Craft

This year we decided not to take our White Chritmas Tree down, come New Year or, ehh…Valentine’s Day? That’s usually when we get around to it. Instead, we decided to leave it up all year, light up our home every evening, and decorate it according to the seasons and holidays! I’ve been waiting for September 1 to hit so we could finally bring out the Halloween ornaments that I bought on clearance last year! Our Witchy tree needed a little more spooky so, this week, little man and I set out to make the best, gigantic fuzzy spiders that we could!


  • Jumbo black pom poms (hobby lobby)
  • Tacky glue or Elmer’s liquid glue
  • Googley eyes
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Black and white striped twine

Instructions:1. Wrap four pipe cleaners around your finger to make a spiral and cut in half. You want 8 spirals altogether as your legs!

2. Add a drop of glue to the side of your pom pom and glue one end of your leg onto your spider body. We had a little trouble with this part but, if you hold your spider body firm, you can push one end of your pipe cleaner into the side! Make sure to leave them to dry for approx. one hour and don’t move or touch them until they’re dry and adhered!

3. Add your googley eyes! Little man only wanted two eyes but, momma went a little googley eye crazy and I added 8 to mine in all different sizes!

4. Now, tie a loop knot with your twine, add a drop of glue, lay the knot onto your glue. Let the glue dry and once everything is ready, hang your gian, jumbo, fuzzy spiders!

If you don’t have a tree like us, hang your spiders from your mantle or light fixtures! We will definitely be adopting more of these cuties this season and hanging them all over the house for a fun and spooky Halloween!

Have fun and stay safe this season!

Happy Halloween!
