Egg Carton Spiders Craft

Overall Rating

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cardboard egg carton
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Hole punch
  • Paint brush
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Tape or glue

How to Make

  • Cut the cups out of your egg carton and paint them black. Let them dry completely.

  • Next, use your hole punch to punch out two small holes for eyes near the top and four holes along each side.

  • Fold two pipe cleaners in half and cut. Place the pipe cleaners through each corresponding leg hole. Use the tape or glue to secure the legs on the inside. (I placed tape across the middle and on each side to keep the legs from slipping.)

  • Finally, bend the legs so that they look like a spider.
