Spooky Stone Spiders
With a short list of supplies and a simple set of instructions, these
fun little spiders are sure to be a Halloween crafting hit with the
How We Did It
Paint your stone(s) black. You can use acrylic paint or another kind of
craft paint you have on hand. Just keep in mind whether your paint is
washable or not and dress your child accordingly. ;) Allow your stone(s)
to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Take two black pipe cleaners cut in half if your stones are small or four
full pipe cleaners for a larger stone. Using white glue, have your child
attach four pieces of pipe cleaner to the bottom of their stone. Make
sure the pipe cleaners lay side by side and flat so your spider won't tip
over. Using a stronger adhesive (e.g., E-6000) would be more durable but
not nearly as child friendly so if you choose to use a stronger adhesive,
parents will need to be in charge of the glue.
Once your glue has dried, take your spiders legs and bend and move them
around to space them out and give them some shape and then you can move
on to the very last step.
All we need to do now is give your silly little spider some eyes. Using
your glue, attach two googly eyes to the spiders "body" and that's it.
All done. Isn't he a cutie!?
