I love coming up with school Art projects, especially for My Princess. She loves anything that requires cutting and pasting and that makes it super easy for me. I use Enchanted Learning for seasonal ideas and this one turned out so cute, I thought you might like to do it with the little ones in your life or maybe just for a Halloween decoration.
All you need is some yarn, a piece of cardboard, some googly eyes, and 4 pipe cleaners.
Start wrapping the yarn around the cardboard to make your pom pom. The more times you wrap it around the heartier your spider will be.
Once you get it to your liking, remove the yarn from the cardboard being sure to keep it as it was on the cardboard.
Next, squeeze the center of it together and lay center the pipe cleaners on your yarn. Tie the center of the yarn and the pipe cleaners together.
Then, cut through the yarn on both sides.
Bend the legs to look like spider legs, attach the eyes and you have these adorable scary spiders.
Love it! Thanks for the idea!
