Black Hairy Scary Spider

Picture of Black Hairy Scary Spider
 I was trying to come up with an instructable to enter in the Halloween contest when the Pom bottle caught my eye.  It's shape screamed "spider!".  All the materials are things that were around my house.  You don't have to stick to my list, just substitute whaterver you have that will work in it's place.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

plastic bottle
fuzzy yarn
wire
1 sock
1/2 of a plastic Easter egg- a small ball would work
spray paint
glue
needle & strong thread/floss

wire cutters
pliers
scissors
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.

Step 2:

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.


Step 3:

Wrap the yarn around the bottle several times where it goes in (the "waist"), and tie off the yarn. Do the same for the "neck".
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.***
