Paper Cup Spiders

Paper cups have all kinds of uses, including making Halloween decorations!



  • Paper Cups
  • Magic Markers/Art Paint
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue

Let the kids color or paint their cup however they want. (Polka dots are fun and a silly face too!)

Bend the pipe cleaners to make the legs and insert into the cup.

Glue on the eyes and pose!

Spiders, spiders everywhere!

I am terrified of spiders (actually I am more afraid of grasshoppers-don’t ask-and heights but those things really don’t have much to do with Halloween) so this is really freaky. And incredibly easy to make.


Stuff a white stocking with cotton or stuffing to create the egg sack. Attach fake spiders to the stocking. They should just stick to the material. For an extra creepy look, have a few spiders dangle from the bottom of the egg sack by thread or floss.
