What you need for pipe cleaner spiders
How to Make Pipe Cleaner Spiders
Make the Legs
Cut your 2 long pipe cleaners in half (making 4 shorter pieces.
An easy way for kids to gage the half way point is to have them fold the pipe cleaners in half first. Use some quality scissors and cut them in half.
Using the smallest pipe cleaner piece, wrap up the longer 4 pieces.
After the center is secured, make sure to spread those spider legs out.
Now give them a little bend. This makes them look more “spidery”!
Add the Eyes
If you have adhesive googly eyes, stick them on the pom pom. If not, use glue to attach the eyes. Give it a little time to try!
Feel free to have fun with these. You can choose bigger eyes or make them a little uneven.
Attach the Head to the Body
A hot glue gun is ideal for this but if you have little hands helping, using a craft glue will work fine. Just add a bit and give the glue a few minutes to dry.
