Halloween Spider Craft for Kids



Pipe Cleaners

Google Eyes

Bells (Pom poms, or any other round item for spider body)

Glue Sticks for Hot Glue Gun

I purchased ALL of these items at the Dollar Tree, for $1 each!

The Dollar Tree is totally my new craft store.

I already had the hot glue gun, but you can grab one almost anywhere, including Amazon.

We found lots of spider craft inspiration on Pinterest, most of the projects used pom poms for the spider body, but we weren’t able to find large pom poms at the Dollar Tree.

We wanted to stick to our frugal budget for this project, so we decided to find something else that would work.

Christmas decor is already out (lawd help us), so we grabbed some decorative bells and decided to spray paint them black, with some old paint that we already had in the garage.

Once the bells were dry, we took them back inside and started to construct our spiders!

I set up a station with beads, google eyes, and pipe cleaners, and let the kids have at it.

They let me know when they were ready to glue, and I controlled the hot glue gun for the finishing touches.

As you can see, this is a great craft for any age or skill level.

We even love our three, and six legged spiders just the same.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
