Silly, Spooky, Simple Spiders!

I am a huge fan of fast and easy crafts that I can start and finish in a nap time... maybe two.  This silly project was not only fast, but super inexpensive!

All of the supplies... minus the spray paint & hot glue, were found at Dollar Tree!  
Here's what you'll need to pick up:
  • 3 foam "carvable" pumpkins
  • 24 pipe cleaners
  • 1 bag of Googlie Eyes
Yup, that's it!  5 bucks!

Not a complicated project here!  Spray paint your pumpkins, hot glue a bunch of eyes (I used almost an entire pack on these 3 pumpkins).  Then, arrange 8 pipe cleaners per pumpkin however you want!

These pumpkins were literally cracking me up while I was making them.  I bought these pumpkins planning on making some sort of "topiary" with the three pumpkins stacked on each other.  I'm sure that would have been cute, too... but I couldn't resist this somewhat spooky, silly, simple spiders!

So there you have it!  What have you been working on lately?


I linked up to these fabulous parties: 

Dream a Little Bigger


  1. Cute! The piano never looked that nice in my homes.

  2. Oh my boys would love to turn my cheapie Dollar Tree pumpkins into silver spiders!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. It's funny how fun crafts can happen on accident! This would definitely be an easy craft for the kiddos! I can only imagine how creepy boys could make them look :)

  3. This is definitely a creative way to use those cheapie pumpkins! I see lots of refashioned pumpkins with them, but these are the first spiders I've seen!

    1. It was all on accident, too! But I just love how they turned out!! :)
