Halloween Balloon Spiders

4 Materials
10 Minutes
Hello friends, I have a super easy project for Halloween.
These Halloween balloon spiders would be great as party decorations or you can use them to decorate your house now. I’ll probably make more of these for my front porch on Halloween. They would blow away if I tried to put them up now.
Blow up your balloons. I used mini balloons from the dollar store.
Take 4 pipe cleaners and twist them together in the middle.
Twist the pipe cleaners around your balloon knot and bend the spider legs.
Glue a pom pom over the pipe cleaners for the spiders head. You can go even further and add googly eyes to the pom poms. Make sure you keep the pipe cleaner ends away from the balloon, otherwise they can pop your spider!
My spiders are crawling around my front door for now. I put them up with a piece of double sided removable tape. You could hang some of them with a piece of fishing line on your front porch for more Halloween fun. The kids will love them. These would also be great for an insect party...

    How clever! Kind of remind me of ticks tho. Ick!! But I will still be making some of these for Halloween. Think I'll try some little balloons as the bodies too. Thank you for sharing!
