You Need

  • 6.5-foot length of black giant chenille pipe cleaner
  • 1 tennis ball
  • 1 ping pong ball
  • 2 18mm wiggle eyes
  • 8 yellow pompons, about ½ inch in size
  • Black craft paint
  • Yellow 3-D fabric paint
  • 1-inch sponge brush
  • Paper plates
  • Wire snippers
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Squeeze black paint onto a paper plate. Use the sponge brush to paint the tennis ball and ping pong ball black. Let dry. You may need to paint more than 1 coat to get a solid black color. Let the paint dry between each coat.

Cut the chenille pipe cleaner into 4 equal lengths. Twist the centers of all 4 wires together to form 8 legs.

Use the hot glue gun and glue sticks to glue 1 yellow pompon onto each end of each chenille wire.

Hot glue the twisted center of the chenille wires to the tennis ball.

Hot glue the ping pong ball to the tennis ball just above the center of the chenille wires.

Hot glue the wiggle eyes to the ping pong ball.

Use the 3-D paint to add yellow dots of color to the body of the spider. Let dry.
