Paper Spiders for Halloween

I love the kooky, colorful side of Halloween.  For me, not everything has to be old bones and tombstones!  Here's a fun kid's project using old magazines, pipe cleaners and the best craft supply ever....GOOGLY EYES!  I made these for season 1 of my PBS show, Make Your Mark, which now has it's own YouTube channel!  Have fun this Halloween and don't forget to 
Make Your Mark!

Watch how to make them here!
Americana Multi-Surface Satin paints
Glue gun
Magazine pages
Pipe cleaners
Needle nose pliers and wire cutters (or old scissors)
White glue
Googly eyes
1. Roll 4" x 8" magazine pages into tubes and secure the ends with white glue
2. & 3. Roll one tube to make the head of the spider and 3 tubes to make the body of the spider
4.  Hot glue a small roll and large roll together to make the body of the spider
5.  Paint the bodies in different colors
6. & 7.  Cut the pipe cleaners in half and glue 4 pieces on the body of the spider

 Creepy cute!
