Toilet Paper Spider
- Makes: 1 Spider
- Time: About 8 Minutes
- Skill: Easy
- 8 Black Pipe Cleaners
- 17×17 Pice of Black Fabric or Napkin (I cut a piece from an old t-shirt)
- 2 Small Googly Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue Stick
- Roll Of Toilet Paper
Step 1: Lay fabric flat and place roll of toilet paper in the center.
Step 2: Start tucking the fabric into the center of the roll of toilet paper. As you go try to make small pleats so that it is not all bunched in one area.
Step 5: Just at the outer edge of the toilet paper roll, bind each of the pipe cleaners to start forming the legs. You may have to bind/move them around a little to get them spaced just right.
Step 6: At the bottom of each pipe cleaner give it about a half-inch bend to make a foot.
Step 7: Using the hot glue gun, glue the eyes in place in the upper center of the front of the roll. You want the legs to be to each side.
That’s it! Now you have your own DIY toilet paper spider!
