kids club® chenille stem pet spider

This project is intended for kids ages 4+.
Step 1

Bend four black chenille pipe cleaners in half to find the middle. Straighten them back out. Lay them out in front of you and position them in a circle where they overlap in the middle, resembling the spokes of a wheel.

Step 2

Now, twist the middle together where they all meet to secure, then arrange the ends into spider legs until you have eight evenly spaced legs.
TIP: Use the image as a guide.

Step 3

Slightly curve each leg by running your thumb along the chenille pipe cleaner. About ¼" [0.6 cm] from the bottom of each leg, make a 90° bend to create a "foot" so that the spider can stand.

Step 4

Glue a large black pom-pom onto the middle of the legs. Let dry.

Step 5

Glue wiggle eyes to the front of the pom-pom. Let dry.

Step 6

Cut a length of yarn that is about 24" [61 cm] long and tie it under the spider's body. Trim one end close to your spider’s body and allow the long end to be your spider's leash.
