Supplies Needed:
Halloween Crafts for Kids: Creepy Pipe Cleaner Spider

  • Assorted pipe cleaners
  • Small black disposable plate
  • Assorted pom poms
  • Pair of google eyes
  • Glue

I was able to find all of the supplies listed above at my local Dollar Tree store. You can check out your own local dollar store to see if they carry similar supplies as well. If not, head to your local craft stores where you should not have any problem finding these pieces. If you should visit Hobby Lobby or Michael’s, be sure to check them out online first and print off your 40% coupon. This way, you can still do this craft for less.


  1. First, let’s make the spider. To do this, you want to take four pipe cleaners. Bend the pipe cleaners in half, and then in half again. Snip the ends so that you have four pieces of pipe cleaner which you will then bend into eight legs.
  2. Twist the center of the bunch of the pipe cleaners so they stay together. Add a generous dab of glue and place a pom pom on top. You now have your spider body.
  3. Add a few drops of glue on the spider body to glue the google eyes on. Press the eyes firmly into place until you know they have adhered well.
  4. Set your spider aside, as you now want to make the web.
  5. To make the web, take your black disposable plate and pipe cleaners. Begin by crossing the pipe cleaners in all different directions across the plate
  6. To secure them, you just need to bend the ends so they are hugging the rim of the plate securely.
  7. Continue this process until the web is as complicated and thick as you wish.
  8. Now, it is time to attach the spider to the web. To do this, simply wrap the ends of his little legs around the web pipe cleaners. This should secure him into place just right.

You can now display your creepy pipe cleaner spider on web any way you choose. Pin it or tape it onto a wall, prop it up on a bookcase, or even add some string and hang it from the ceiling. Either way, it is sure to be a piece of Halloween flare your child will have a blast doing and be proud of. Looking for more great Halloween crafts for kids? Check out our DIY Flower Pot Pumpkin!
