Step 1: Materials
1/2 of a plastic Easter egg- a small ball would work
needle & strong thread/floss
saw- this is my only saw- one with a finer blade would probably be better- maybe a hacksaw? I tried a bread knife as well, but it was about as effective as the saw.
Cut the top of the bottle off at the neck (you can cut it wherever it works best for your head piece).
Cut the bottom part of the sock off where the heel ends. You can put the top half back in the scrap bag. This sock is fuzzier inside so I turned it inside out. Slip the bottle into the remaining sock half.
Put a liberal amount of glue (I used E6000) around the inside and outside of the neck of the bottle. Tuck the top part of the sock into the top of the bottle. Put a cork/small ball/wad of paper/whatever, in the top of the bottle to keep things in place while the glue dries.
Glue on the "head" piece.
***I spray painted the head piece while the glue was drying. I was just winging this project, so didn't paint the leg wires at the same time, as I wasn't sure that the wire I had would work.***
I used a round nose pliers to put a little curve at the ends for "feet".
***I used garden wire for my legs, but wire coat hangers would probably work well too. If you don't have round nose pliers you can use regular pliers and make right angles instead of curves for feet- or you can just leave them plain. Shorter lengths of yarn are easier to work with, just tie another piece on the end that's running out.***
Take a needle and some strong thread or floss and tack the two front and two back legs onto the underside of the body- this will keep Spidey stable.
I used some felt scraps to cut out jaw, eyes ( eyes are 3 pieces layered, black, red, black, to get a little volume) and for a spot on the back. You could draw some features on, use buttons, colored paper, anything - oooh!- human eyes cut from a magazine and glued on would really freaky!
