These pom pom spiders are a result of my son asking me to decorate home for Halloween. The only thing associated with this holiday that he doesn’t like are the creepy crawlies. And especially spiders! So, I thought why not make spiders that are cute. This way he can see the not so scary side of them.
DIY Pom Pom Spiders
These spiders are not only cute but terribly easy to make! You can also make them with your kids. And they can get involved creatively through colorful pom poms.
My boy loves them because of those bigger than usual googly eyes. And he enjoys scaring us around the home with them.
Let me show you how to make diy spiders?
DIY Spiders Tutorial
You will need:
- Pom poms
- Pipe cleaners
- Google eyes
- Needle and thread
- Glue dots
Cut pipe cleaner into equal lengths to make spider legs.
Sew four pipe cleaners on a pom pom. Make sure you do it tightly, so they don’t move around.
Now place a glue dot on the back of each googly eye. And press it into the pom pom.
However, black pipe cleaners can give a natural look to the spiders. I used white pipe cleaners.
Bend and shape pipe cleaners to look like spider legs.
And with a sharpie, color the pipe cleaners black.
I am loving the natural hairy look on spider’s legs that is enhanced with sharpie shading.
I used doily to make a spider web. Pumpkins and pine cones to complete the look.
