These cute spider pencils are the perfect Halloween craft for kids of all ages!

Kids Craft - Halloween Spider PencilsAre your kids looking for a quick and easy Halloween craft to create? These spooky (but cute!) spider pencils are just the thing!


What You’ll Need:


Halloween Washi Tape PencilsStart by covering the pencils with washi tape. If you run the tape down the length of the pencil, it should take two strips of tape to cover the entire pencil.

Making Painted Styrofoam Ball SpidersPaint the styrofoam balls with black paint, and allow them to dry completely. Once dry, use tacky glue to attach the eyeballs.

Halloween Spider Pencil Craft for KidsCut chenille stems/pipe cleaners into smaller pieces, and stick into the styrofoam ball for legs. Insert the pencil into the bottom of the spider, and you’re finished – easy peasy!



Halloween Spider Pencil Kids CraftPlay around with different color combinations, leg sizes and googly eye shapes to give each spider a unique personality!
