Styrofoam Spiders

Styrofoam spiders

These leggy friends make great Halloween decorations.

What You Need

  • Black or brown washable poster paint
  • 3 black or brown pipe cleaners
  • One 2-inch Styrofoam ball

What You Do

  1. Paint Styrofoam
    Paint the Styrofoam ball. Wait for the ball to dry. (Drying time will vary with the type of paint.)
  2. Make Spider Legs
    • Cut the 3 pipe cleaners into 3-inch pieces. You will only need 8 of the 3-inch pipe cleaners for the legs.
    • Stick the pipe cleaners into the Styrofoam ball and bend them slightly so they curve to make legs.
  3. Paint Eyes
    Eyes can be made with a small dab of white paint or puffy paint.
