Can you have too many spiders for Halloween?  I don't think so!
This was a fun and super easy little craft.  I found it in the October, Family Fun Magazine.  If you haven't ever looked at Family Fun it has lots of fun ideas and projects in there.  And like I said, this one was very easy and inexpensive!
All you need is chenille bump pipe cleaners, sucition cups, pom-pom for the body, googly eyes, and some glue.  We used Fabric-tac so my kids could do it too.
Twist the pipe cleaners around the suction cup.  Glue the pom-pom to the top.  Glue eyes on.  Really Simple.
In less than 20 minutes, we now have 3 more little spiders running around our house!  Can't go wrong with that!

I love they way they turned out.  One bag of pipe cleaners made three.  I'm really tempted to make some more!

Yes we do! All girls this time. There is Annie, Sparklemarel, and Deda. I have no clue where they came from.

Hi Melissa, I love this spider with the suction cup. Awesome idea.

I can't find your email address so I have to respond to your comment here. You can grab someones button by copying the code in the box below the picture. Then go to your blog and paste the code wherever you want the button to appear. If you want it in your post, edit post and add. If you want it on your side bar, go to "Design", select "add gadget" and elect HTML/java script. Paste code in that box and save. There, that was a book. Hope it helps.
