Cutest Wooden Halloween Spider – DIY

There is nothing better then crafting with your child! I was beyond thrilled when my 15 years old daughter decided to make some Halloween decor with me. She wanted to make a SPIDER!!! to my surprise, because she is sooo afraid of them. You can’t blame her …She promised that it will be cute! I can guarantee it will be perfect Fall Halloween craft with kids

Things she collected to make a wooden spider

  • oval pieces of wood ( bought at Michaels .. both for $1)
  • googly eyes
  • acrylic paint
  • wire
  • ribbon

Majority of those items we had at the house .. Our investment was less then a dollar. There are different ways to make a spider. You can use cardboard to replace her choice of wood. We all have boxes around. Perfect material for crafts!

She took a rag and wiped edges of cut out with white/ lighter paint to create a shadow/ dimension and hot glued them slightly overlapping like it is shown below

Prepare 6 legs out of wire with a little loop at the end. We actually had a small discussion how many legs spider have … I was positive it was 8, but it is her project and that is a little detail.

Spider “legs” is there 6 or *
