My kids and I made two of these cute spiders last Halloween. I think I got the idea from Family Fun? Not sure. I just pulled them out of the garage and they need a little TLC, but are in pretty good shape.
They are made from:
Milk jug
4 pipe foam cover thingies
duct tape
plastic scraps
Just cut the top off of your milk jug and cover in duct tape. Tape your legs in the center of the pipe foam. You can see in the picture below that I need to repair a leg.

The eyes of mine are from milk lid, The mouth was a can lid cut in half. I painted the teeth and pupils on with craft paint.

They can be hung, perched or draped form anywhere and a really fun to make.

Cut an upside down V shape out of the center of each leg to make the legs bend and tape them so they stay. {I ran out of duct tape}
I was lots of fun and super cheep! Try it!
