FloraCraft® Black Wooly Spider
Use chenille stems and boas to create a spider you just might feel warm and fuzzy about.
- Time:1 hour
1Use the Foam Cutter or serrated knife to cut the 6 inch and the 4 inch balls in half. Use the other half of each ball to create a second spider or reserve for a future project. Shape the head and body of the spider into ovals.
2Hold the ball on its cut edge on the table, press firmly and roll back and forth slightly to flatten the edge. Stand the ball on its opposite edge and repeat. Continue shaping until your spider has the look you desire.
3Glue the head to the body. Paint the spider black and set aside to dry.
4Twist two chenille stems together for each of the eight legs. Cut 14 inch lengths of feather boa for each leg. Cut 24 pieces of 1.5 inch stem to use as ties. Secure one end of the boa to the leg about 1 inch up from one end. About half way down the leg secure the boa again; this is where the leg bends. The boa will be slightly longer than the end of the stem. Loop the boa and secure the loop to the end of the stem. This creates a fuzzy foot. Repeat this step for each leg. Secure the stem from each leg into the body just behind the neck (4 on each side).
5Cut two 3 inch pieces of chenille stem. Fold each piece in half and twist the ends together. Shape a slight bend in each and glue into the front of the face for the pinchers. Glue four eyes on each side of the head just above the pinchers, as shown.
