Repost: Halloween Outdoor Spiders

It's Halloween time again so revisiting some of the crafts that I created for decorations.

I made these spiders 2 years ago and love them. The same craft party where we made the ghosts, we also made these. Or at least we were suppose to but I didn't realize how much paint they used. When I made mine, I spray painted them. However, spray paint does dissolve Styrofoam so I would highly suggest painting them instead. They will use TONS of paint.

Supplies (for 1):
- Large Styrofoam ball (~6")
- Small Styrofoam ball (~3")
- 4 black pipe cleaners
- 2 small red pom poms
- Black Paint
- Command Hooks
- EC6000 glue (the best glue ever)

Paint the Styrofoam balls black. Then I put a toothpick between the 2 Styrofoam balls but also glued them for extra security. I cut the pipe cleaners in half and made a hole in the Styrofoam and glued them in the hole. I then glued on the red pom poms for eyes.

I hang them on the wall by my front door with Command hooks. I stick the hook to the wall first and then just poke the hook through the spider.
