giant spider webs really turn heads. It takes a bit of time to make
the web from twine, but well worth the effort, and reusable. The compliments
you get on this is are worth the effort to make them.
This spider is made with 4 pairs of woman's black nylon stockings
stuffed with cotton fiber. The 2 body pieces were made by stretching
black fabric over foam rubber. The stuffed stockings were sewn to
body pieces. Yellow tape decorates the spider and also helps the spider
legs keep their shape. Can be reused.
Made with pvc pipe for the 8 legs and a stuffed trash bag for the
body. You will need to cut 16 sections of pipe the same length for
the 8 legs. The legs in the photo are 16 pieces of 3' sections by
2" . If you get 6' pipes, just cut them in half. You will need
8 angle pieces for the legs and some black paint. If you secure the
legs in a block of wood with 8 holes it will keep the spider from
moving in the wind. Spidy is reusable, if you don't glue the legs
you can dismantle it. A flood light for nighttime viewing will really
enhance the look.
Yard Spider:This spider body is made with a black trash bag stuffed with newspaper, seal the end. For head use a smaller bag. For legs, use old pantyhose or trash bags stuffed with paper, attach to the body with tape. Cut eyes from red paper, attach with tape.
