Just made these for my little ones and thought they were fun, here's how you can make yours too.

What you'll need:

Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Pompoms
Ribbon/Bias tape (small pieces of either one)
Googly Eyes
Pipe Cleaners (at least 3 for each one)
MILK BOTTLE TOPS


Milk Bottle Top

Glue on Pompoms

Glue on White pompoms for eyes and Googly eyes

Glue some ribbon around the base of the bottle top to hide the ugly plastic, If you have tons of pompoms then you could add those instead (I ran out of certain colours so opted for Ribbon/bias tape instead). From pipe cleaners cut a small piece and bend to shape of fangs and 8 Z shapes for legs.

Flip that little sucker over and glue in all the legs, hold each leg down until it's stuck firmly or it may come loose when you start bending their legs.

Flip them over and rearrange the legs until they either stand or sit.

Go crazy and make tons.

Hope you have a blast making these cute little guys.  Grin

Yuk! I do not like spiders, but these are such cute colours I think I have to make an exception.  Thanks for taking the trouble to make a tutorial as well.
