Pine Cone Spooky Spiders

Super easy creepy spider craft.

All you need are black pipe cleaners (4 per spider), googly eyes, small colored pom-poms, pine cones, and black spray paint. (not pictured: hot glue gun for mom or white school glue for kids.) it’s a really inexpensive craft, especially if you have pine cones falling off your pine trees this time of year!

1. glue the googly eyes onto the pom-poms.

2. spray paint the pine cones black. the blacker the better! allow to dry.

3. glue the eyes onto the top/front of the black pine cones.

4. attach pipe cleaners by wedging the centers into the body of the pine cone. (you can glue them into place if you need them to be extra-secure.) bend and trim pipe cleaners as needed to make spider legs.

see how easy that was?! these are the only spiders i’ll allow near my house! they’re just so cute…well, if you could call a spider cute. we’ll be putting them outside our front door for all the trick-or-treaters when the time comes. hopefully they’re not too creeped out. although that would mean more candy for us…. anyway, have fun crafting with your kids!
