How to make a 3d Paper Spider Decoration for Halloween
Active Time15 mins


  • Black paper
  • White paper scraps
  • Pen
  • String for hanging
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Small cup for tracing


  • Cut four 0.5cm strips off the top of the black paper for legs. Cut 8-10 circles from the remaining paper.
  • Fold circles in half.
  • Add glue to one half of one circle and place the second cricle on top. Continue until you have a stack of circles glued together but in half.
  • Add glue to the spine and place your sting against it.
  • Add glue to both top and bottom of the stack, bring together to make a ball and "trap" the string in the middle.
  • Cut the 4 strips of paper in half to make 8 legs and glue to your black bauble - 4 on each side. Fold to make a "leg kink" if you wish.
  • Draw and cut two large eyes. Glue to the front of the bauble.
