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.
