Introduction: Pumpkin Spider

Simple static prop did this a couple years ago, so poorly graphically documented.

You'll need 16 3' sections of one inch pvc, 8 6" pieces, 8 90deg elbows, and 8 45deg elbows.

You can see from the pic how it's assembeled the 6" sections are shoved into the ground to support the legs, the pumpkin is just set on top, with a smaller carved pumpkin used as a head.

Step 1: Add Darkness and a Candle

And you are done

    Great idea and very easy to implement compared with household objects.
    :-)

    Looks cool, and you could wrap stuff around the pipe if you wanted to jazz the legs up a little. PVC is hard to recycle though, and it's a common ingredient in lots of projects because it's easy to work. I'd love to see people using alternatives, but cardboard tubes don't stand up well to the weather, and metal pipe, while being infinitely recyclable, is hard to work and rather heavy. Ideas?

    I use PVC that the city is throwing out so I'm saving from the dump. X design good going

    lead pipe is quite easy to work, but unfortunately not easy to find these days. oh well, as soon as we run out of oil i am sure pvc will become prohibitively expensive

    Hey what about the bugs. Would they eat the inside or make a home in it?

    It's only out for halloween, and the cold weaher keeps thebugs at bay..

    Thanks I will ask my dad to find some pvc pipe for me!

    How about spray painting the legs with some kind of neon paint and hiding a blacklight nearby for the night time? =)
