Step 4: legs, continued

cut the black pipecleaners in half with the scissors. then carefully fill each leg hole with hot glue.
insert one pipecleaner leg into each hole. a little more hot glue will help them set firmly if smeared around the base of the leg.
repeat process on the other side of the spiders body.
Nicely done tutorial. I think Spiders are creepy and love them for Halloween.
The dryer lint is a great idea ! I made spiders last yr but carved them from chunks of styrofoam (freebie), for legs I used cut up plastic clothes hangers. I'll have to keep this in mind when we dig them out this yr...
one suggestion the pipe cleaners you used, look for the ones that have the thick patches on them, i used them for some spiders i made and it gives it a much creaper effect.
saw your version of easy spiders, they're pretty darn cool!<br>i have never seen pipe cleaners like those, they're amazing! when i make a new batch of my easy spiders i will totally look for that kind of 'legs'
great instructable but how did you make the dummy?
oh. the dummy is a simple Blucky skeleton from Big Lots ($15) wrapped in tea-stained strips of white cotton material and bagged spiderwebs.
thanks y'all. i didn't know that about those who suffer from arachnophobia... but i doubt any would come through a Halloween Haunted Trail, as spiders are a common Halloween theme. maybe i'll make a warning sign just in case though! thanks for the info :-)
Nice work, but &iquest;Do you know that some persons with arachnophobia may <strong>literally to die</strong> by fright?<br/>
Cool use of dryer lint! Your spiders look great.
