Posts Tagged ‘egg box halloween spiders’

Halloween is nearly here and the shops are full of scarey and wonderful Halloween costumes, masks and decorations, I am sure that there are lots of excited children all over the country, Thomas is very excited and so am I!

Every Halloween we trim up the front of our house, each year adding new decorations; these are either home-made or bought in the post Halloween sales the previous year. Making your own decorations is great fun and a great way to spend a cold afternoon, here is a crafty idea for this year.

Egg Box Spiders and Bats

You will need:

  • Egg Boxes
  • String
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Paper
  • Felt tips/Crayons
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Glitter
  • Scissors
  1. To make the Spiders cut up the egg box into its six cups, paint or decorate the outside as you wish and allow to dry.
  2. Ask a grown up to make 8 small holes around the bottom edges of the cups and one at the top.
  3. Carefully thread each pipe cleaner (4 per spider) through a hole at one side and out of the hole at the other side.
  4. Thread a piece of string through the top hole and tie a knot.
  5. Draw some eyes onto a piece of paper, cut them out and stick them on.

  1. To make the Bats cut your egg box into 2 strips of three cups.
  2. Cut out the front of the left and right cups slightly, and on their backs cut them out to leave a ‘V’ shape (as shown above).
  3. Paint or decorate the outside as you wish and allow to dry.
  4. Make a hole in the top of the middle cup and thread a piece of string through and tie a knot.
  5. Draw some eyes and teeth onto a piece of paper, cut them out and stick them on.

Have fun.
