How to Make a Candy Spider
To make these creepy candy spiders you will need just a few things:
- Bite-Sized Candy Bars – Butterfinger is our favorite!
- Fun Colored Paper
- White Paper
- A Large Round Paper Punch – I used a 1.5in
- A Small Round Paper Punch – I used a 0.75in
- Black Marker
- Hot Glue Gun
- Black Pipe Cleaners
To Make your Candy Spiders:
- First, you want to start by cutting out one large circle for the body and two smaller circles for the eyes.
- Next, use your marker to draw small circles to create the spider eyes.
- Set aside your circles and grab your pipe cleaners. Cut two pipe cleaners in half, and cut a small piece to twist the legs together.
- Lay the 4 halved pipe cleaners together, then use your smaller piece to and twist around the middle of the pipe cleaners.
- Bend the tips of each leg down.
- Take your hot glue and attach your legs to the bottom of your candy, then attach the larger circle to the top to create a body. Then attach each smaller circle to create the eyes!
