Make the Spider’s Web

Use scissors to make half-inch snips around the edge of a paper plate every one to two inches. To spin your web, begin by wedging a 3-inch tail of yarn into one of the snips on your paper plate. Secure the end with tape on the back side of the plate. Wrap yarn lines across the plate, securing the yarn into the notches as you go. Continue wrapping in a haphazard pattern until your web is complete.

Make the Spider’s Body

Begin by wrapping the yarn around three fingers. (We wrapped ours around about 60 times.) Carefully nudge the yarn off your fingers, then tie a short piece of yarn around the circled yarn and tie tightly. Cut the loops of the yarn to create a fuzzy pompom. Trim the pompom to your desired size.

Make the Spider’s Legs

Cut your two pipe cleaners in half. Twist the four pieces of pipe cleaner together in the middle and space them apart. Bend the ends of each piece to create the spider’s feet. Glue the pompom onto the middle of the pipe cleaners. Finish your fuzzy spider by gluing eyes onto the pompom.
