Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Paint heart plaque Lamp (Ebony) Black and let dry.
  • 2
    Trace wood heart shape onto back of craft fur. Note: if carefully traced, 3 hearts can be cut out from one fur sheet.
  • 3
    To create spider legs, fold a chenille stem in half and twist to make a thicker leg. Glue legs to the front of the heart. Once glue is set, bend for “knees” and “feet”.
  • 4
    Glue fur heart to front of wood heart (this will also hide where the legs were glued on). Let dry.
  • 5
    Glue on eyes.
  • 6
    Cut two fangs from White foam sheet 1-1/2 inch x 1-1/2 inch x 1/2 inch. To glue on fangs, pull some of the fur back; glue on fangs and brush fur back in place. Trim off some of the fur so the fangs are more visible.
  • 7
    Remove protective adhesive backing from letters and attach to banner. Using glue gun and glue sticks makes it more likely the letters will stay on for multiple holidays.
  • 8
    Option: to make a “girl” spider, make a bow with Orange ribbon and glue on.
