Anytime anyone finds a spider, they come find me. Apparently I'm the only one that that isn't terrified by these little creatures.
Not only am I not terrified, I actually find them quite interesting. Not kidding. And sometimes a little bit cute. Not kidding either.
So, I thought I'd make them so cute that even my kids would appreciate them and came up with this fun Halloween craft: Cardboard Tube Spiders.
Supplies Needed:Cardboard tubes
Black fuzzy craft sticks (pipe cleaners)
Start by cutting your cardboard tube in half (or quarters if using a paper towel roll).
Next it's time for the kids to take over. Use your black paint to paint each tube.
Once you have them all threaded, bend and arrange your pipe cleaners to look like spider legs.
For the final step, attach your googly eyes. Some of us used 2 eyes per spiders. My youngest decided to be scientifically correct and use 8 eyes. I think I like that one the best.
Once you're done, you've got some fun Halloween spiders.
Stand them up on a shelf or attach string and dangle them from the ceiling.
Either way, they're a fun addition to your Halloween decorations.
See, I told you I could make spiders cute!
