Spiders can be adorable and this Halloween craft is the proof. Just look at the adorable little eyes!

How to Make Pipe Cleaner Spider Craft
What you need:
- black cardstock
- white cardstock
- black liner
- ruler with circle shapes
- 2 pipe cleaners
- circle punchers
Step by Step Tutorial
Punch out 8 black circles using the circle puncher.
Fold 7 of the black circles in half.
Apply some glue on the halves, then attach them together as shown on the picture. That will be the spider`s body.
Put some glue on the 8th circle.
Attach the spider`s body on the 8th circle.
Draw two big eyes on the white cardstock (you can make them different size if you want to). Use the ruler with circle shapes and the black liner for drawing the eyes, then cut them out.
Apply some hot glue on the back of the eyes and attach them to the body.
Cut 9 equal parts out of the chenille sticks.
Put some glue on the back of the spider`s body and add 4 pipe cleaners parts (legs) on one side.
Add the other 4 chenille parts on the opposite side of the body.
Take the 9th pipe cleaner, then form an O shape and glue it in the middle using glue. Follow the picture provided.
Make folds on each of the legs` ends.
All done! Whoo – hoo!
These spiders are so adorable. You can make more of them using different colors if you want to, then hang them around the house – we recommend using yarn for this.
You can also attach wooden sticks to them and place them in a basket full of treats.
That is all for today. Stay tuned for more crafts!
