Spider Pumpkins

Noah and I made these last weekend as part of the decorations for his spider/Halloween themed birthday party. Well, actually I did most of the work and he just watched and babbled to me. Oh and I sang Itsy Bitsy spider. A LOT!

These were simple to make. You just need a small pumpkin, 4 black piper cleaners, and some black vinyl. Or you could just use black cardstock instead of vinyl.

I cut the pipe cleaners in half and then used a kitchen knife and made a small "X" where I wanted each pipe cleaner to go. I pushed the pipe cleaner in and then bent the bottom part of the pipe cleaner to make the feet.

I used my 3/4 inch circle punch and punched 3 circles out of the vinyl. Then I cut into 2 of those circles a little bit to create eyes. I peeled off the backing and let Noah bang pat down the eyes and mouth and that was it!

  1. Adorable. And see? Noah "patted" down the eyes and mouth, so he helped! :)
