Spider & Spider Victim Plans

Every home deserves an over sized spider hanging around on the roof, and if you can blow up a balloon you might just be able to create your own.


Dano from Dano’s Spider House has a tutorial on how to create some really good looking paper mache spiders that are worthy of any haunt.



The good news is they’re easy to create and you can make them as large as you want since all of the parts used are sizable based on your needs.  It”ll help if you’ve got some experience creating with paper mache, but even if you don’t you should still be able to create these awesome arachnids.  Dano’s even got a great single bodied option using PVC legs that’s worth trying as well!


Items needed to complete this include:

  • Balloons
  • Water
  • Flour
  • PVC connectors
  • Foam pipe insulation
  • Indoor/Outdoor lights
  • Plastic semi-transparent ball
  • Black tempera paint
  • Waterproof sealer
  • Coffee grounds for texture (optional)
