The clock is ticking. Halloween is fast approaching. You have been running around getting costumes, preparing food and maybe getting ready for a big party. Do you have all your decor done? No worries. Today I am sharing a quick project with a big impact.
I have to admit that I am not crazy about spiders. I do, however, love the beautiful webs they weave. There are a lot hanging around the eaves of the house. EEEK! Just don’t run into that web!
I thought it would be fun to create a beanbag spider for creepy, crawly fun.
- 1 black beanbag
- Black Deco Mesh
- 1pkg of soap grips
- safety pins, wire and hot glue
The most time is spent making the legs of the spider. There is enough mesh to make 8 legs. I just eyed the length and cut eight sheets out of the 10ft roll. I then rolled them from the widest point and attached wire and twisted it together.
The mesh allows you to play with its form. It is waterproof too. Although the beanbag is fabric, there are foam pellets inside to make it durable to use out on the lawn. You just need to anchor it so it doesn’t blow away.
When the eight legs are rolled gather them, four on each side, and safety pin it to the top of the bean bag. The beanbag has a circle in the middle. I used this as a guide. Lift up material and pin underneath the hemmed circle so you don’t see the pin.
Then hot glue them to where you want the eyes to sit.
