Introduction: Pumpkin Spider

About: Working my dream job in the Telecom industry, so chances are, i'll never have time to respond to comments or messages, nothing personal.

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?

    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?

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

    not all spiders have 8 eyes. that's not true. but all spiders have 8 legs, that's what defines a spider.

    The point was to win me a subscription to Make in the Halloween contest. But my squid costume ended up winning me that. Caesar, it doesn't "work", it's a static prop and just sits there.

    Just when I think, "Surely this person has reached and encapsulates the limits of Internet tedium" you go and push the boundary even further. In future, kindly proofread your posts before assaulting unsuspecting readers of this message board with a litany of misspellings, egregious grammatical errors, and other verbal atrocities. Trying to get something of value out of your post is like trying to squeeze orange juice out of an apple. You could type every thing you know on the subject on back of a microscopic postage stamp and still have room leftover for a shopping list. Anyway, who was talking to you or even taking you under consideration? To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." Most repair manuals are far more interesting than you, and far less turgid to read. You are validating my inherent mistrust of strangers. Maybe you wouldn't read like such a pathetic loser if you weren't an 'idiot savant' without the 'savant' part; if your weren't so fat that when you stand on the Speaking Scale, it screams, or if you didn't have a face like a boiled Octopus. Who am I kidding? You would. Now, if you care to apologize for wasting my shamefully wasted time, I'll consider accepting it.
