Who knew that spiders could be so cute! Ok.. I did.. we already made the most adorable Paper Spider and Pom Pom Spider and now it is time for our Finger Knitting Spider for Halloween!! If you are family with Red Ted Art, you will know that the kids and I LOVE Finger Knitting. Many people learn how to finger knit but then don’t do much beyond that actual “finger knitting sausage”.. what to make with all your lovely Finger Knitting? I have MANY Finger Knitting Favourites, you will simply have to check them all out for yourself.. as I can’t choose the one! But before you do.. do take a peak at today’s simple Finger Knitting Spider!!
Finger Knitting Spider Project – Materials
- black wool – chunky if possible, if not, double up your yarn
- googly eyes & glue
- pipecleaners OR more black wool/ multi coloured wool for legs
- your fingers!
How to make a Finger Knitted Spider for Halloween
Now I say these Finger Knitted Spiders are great Halloween decorations to finger knit.. but of course you can make these whenever you want.. they would be perfect for a rendition of Incy Wincy Spider too.. don’t you think?
What do you think? Aren’t they the cutest?! As mentioned in the video – using pipecleaners for the legs is the QUICKEST way to make your finger knitted spiders. Cheaper and equally cute (but takes a bit longer) are the plaited yarn leg versions!!! So you have a choice depending on time and the child’s dexterity!
Aren’t these Spider Decorations for Halloween simply fun?!
