Cute little spiders that your kids can make for Halloween.

spider complete

This little spider is so easy to  make that even your kids could do it!  I used a soft bendable wire that can be easily cut with wire cutters and a wooden bead that has a hole in it. I painted on eyes but you could use some of those little glue on eyes from the craft store to make it easier for kids to make.


  • wooden beads that have a hole in them
  • black paint
  • soft bendable wire

Step 1.

Put beads on a skewer to make them easier to paint. I stuck mine in a potato but styrofoam blocks work well too.  It’s also easier to spray paint them but I was doing this at night and we have all kinds of wild animals outside so I opted to paint them by hand inside the house.

Cut four pieces of wire.  You should probably help your kids with this part so they don’t pinch their fingers with the wire cutters.

Push the wires through the hole and drip some glue into the hole.  Let it dry really well.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
