Of all the creepy things that come out to play on Halloween, for an arachnophobe like me, spiders are high up on the fright list. Which is why I’m having to channel my inner calm to bring you this selection of sinister Halloween spider crafts.
Mmm, OK, there may be some exaggeration going on there because these crafts are actually pretty cute. And perfect to make for or with the kids.
From pipe cleaner legs, to pom pom bodies and googly eyes, each craft offers an interesting take on the creepiest of critters. The best bit. All of these double as spooky Halloween decor.
So do check out the tutorials and have fun crafting for Halloween!
