We’re planning to have our own family Halloween party at home this year. I’ve seen some great Halloween decorations in the shops, but how fun is it to make your own! I always think they look much cuter in that wonky / eye ball is now falling off way. Spiders are my absolute nemesis so I thought why not make our own spiders and make them as darn cute as possible to keep away those spider chills. Here’s how to make BOO-TASTIC Halloween spiders.
These are going to be super easy (but messy) to make.
You will need (things you most likely already have *phew)
4 empty toilet rolls to make 4 BOO-TASTIC Halloween spiders
Black paint (YASS – I know… black paint. Ekk!!!)
Googley eye balls
A bit of sparkle (optional)
Draw a line around the top part of each toilet roll (that small bit will be the spiders body).
Step 2 (Is a bit tricky for little hands)
Once you have your guideline, cut up to the line until you have eight spider legs. To make them more spider-like, we thinned each leg out by making additional cuts and removing the excess toilet roll. Little Button (7 years old) did this herself, but younger hands will need help. Repeat for all 4 spiders.
Bend the legs of each spider to give them a bit of BOO!
Paint your spiders black (inside and out) and leave to dry overnight. *Don’t forget that black paint is super messy! Always cover tables and get your little one to wear old clothes and/or apron up.
Stick on the googley eye balls and bedazzle your spiders legs.
Turn your BOO-TASTIC Halloween spiders into decorations by hanging them with thread.
We’ve decided not to scare our neighbours with these (hehe!) and have taken our BOO-TASTIC Halloween spiders inside to chill-out on our window ledges ready for the party.
