Spider Halloween Costume

Here’s a spooky spider for a stalwart Halloweener who wants to be a little bit scary on the big night.

Spider Halloween Costume

You Will Need

  • 1 black hooded sweatshirt
  • 1 pair black pants
  • 13extra-thick chenille pipe cleaners
  • Heavy-duty black craft thread

What to Do

1. To make each spider leg, braid three pipe cleaners together. Secure ends with glue or thread. Repeat until you have four legs. Sew two legs to each side of top under the arms. Laying legs out on one side of the sweatshirt, use craft thread to join the legs to each other and to the sleeve of the sweatshirt without changing their spacing (see photograph). Repeat on the other side. The craft thread keeps the legs up and allows them to move with the child’s arms.

2. Use the last pipe cleaner to make feelers, which should be attached to the tip of the hood and be bent to curve inward.

3. Add reflective tape detailing for nighttime safety.
