Craft Project - Spider-Can!
by Wen Zientek-Sico

Spider-Can!This fun and inexpensive craft project is quick and easy - and even the kids will love it. A great decoration for Halloween parties or other spooky occasions - or great party activity or door prize, it will be sure to be a hit! If your can has sharp edges, make sure to make them safe. The easiest way to do this that we have found is to take a glue gun and apply a thick line of glue along any sharp edges before painting. This will protect anyone from getting cut, and the paint will hide the glue.

Spider-Can!

Spider-Can


1 tuna or other round flat can

Newspaper

Black acrylic paint

Paint brush

Scissors

2 orange fuzzy chenille stems

2 brown fuzzy chenille stems

Glue gun or tacky glue

2 1/2 inch googly eyes

1 medium orange pompom

Orange string or yarn


Clean the can well and let it dry thoroughly. Cover your work surface thoroughly with newspaper. Paint the can with the black paint inside and out. You may need two coats of paint, and if you do, make sure to let it dry thoroughly in between coats. Once the paint is dry, cut the chenille stems in half to form 8 fuzzy legs. Bend the legs, and glue them to the top of the can, alternating between the orange and brown, using the photo as a reference. Glue the eyes and nose onto the spider's "face" and then glue the string to the top of the can. Let dry thoroughly before hanging.
