DIY PAPER STRAW SPIDER CRAFT
Things are about to get spooky at your house! Whip up some easy paper straw Halloween spider crafts in no time.
These paper straw spiders are just about the simplest, but cutest Halloween decor around! They are perfect to hang over your windows, on your mantle, or use for a Halloween party table. The options are endless!
But yes, when you hang them on some top spots like in the corners of the ceiling, they would certainly appear like real spiders. Well, if you have a ladder from the Wide range of ladders for all DIY tasks, then you are definitely sorted not just for Halloween, but for all DIY tasks you want to do.
In case, you don't, then you can stick to keeping these paper spiders on tables, on bookshelves, or even on shoe stands to make way for the creepiest Halloween.
On that note, are you ready to make your own Paper Straw Halloween Spider Decorations?
WHAT YOU'LL NEED FOR THE SPIDER CRAFTS:
- Styrofoam craft balls, 3 inch size
- black and white striped straws, 8 per spider
- googly eyes
- hot glue gun or craft glue
Also, note that you would need some amount of patience to get a fruitful result while doing this craft. It is not arduous, but it needs attention to detail, which is a trait of those who are patient enough.
HOW TO MAKE THE HALLOWEEN SPIDER CRAFTS:
1)Use hot glue or Sugru adhesive (click here for checking out the product) to fix the eyes onto the styrofoam ball (the "body" of the spider).
2) Bend the striped straws about ⅔ of the way down. These will be the legs.
You can also bend the legs after you know where you will put the spiders. Then you can make sure the DIY paper straw spiders will fit exactly where you want them.
3) Insert the "legs" into the styrofoam ball, 4 on each side. Then hot glue to secure in place.
For smaller size spider crafts, cut the straws in half and use mini styrofoam craft balls for a whole collection of spiders sizes.
While you have the foam craft balls out, don't forget to make some hanging ghosts, too!
