I love these giant spiders and they couldn’t be easier.
So here we go…
- black pipe cleaners (or any other colour- you can just spray paint them black)
- gorilla glue
- black spray paint
- Command hooks (the ones with a little metal hook)
- large styrofoam balls
- smaller styrofoam balls
- small amount of red paint
Use command strips wherever you want to hang your spiders. This is the best part. You can put your spider anywhere, brick, siding, anywhere. And you can just peel them off after Halloween. Or if you’re like me you will probably be too lazy to ever bother taking them off.
And now you have a swarm of giant spiders attacking your home. How awesome it that.
A friend of mine just made these and had it go terribly wrong. She used Krylon spray paint and it disintegrated the Styrofoam balls. I used Rustoleum Flat Protective Enamel spray paint (it’s just what I had at home in the garage) and had no problems with it. But I guess some spray paint will destroy Styrofoam. I had no idea! So maybe to be safe it’s best to just used acrylic craft paint to paint the Styrofoam black.
