These creepy crawlers are fun to draw all year round, but they “peak” during Halloween – if you want to draw more Halloween characters, also check our how to draw a bat or how to draw a pumpkin tutorial, so the spider won’t be lonely.

You can make this one either cute, or scary – draw the fans or scratch them off completely and rather draw one big happy grin. Make a pair of eyes or the scary looking set of 8 – either way it’s a pretty simple tutorial to follow.
