These spiders would look cute in a bunch, or mixed in with other balloons. Why not throw in an orange and black pom-pom balloon while you’re at it. 😉

How to Make Spider Balloons

Step 1. Inflate balloons

Inflate 12″ black latex balloons with helium. I like to use the Balloon Time personal helium tanks. Note that these balloons will stay afloat for about 4 hours. You’ll want to make them as close to the start of your party or event as possible. As a longer lasting alternative to helium balloons, you can use air filled balloons on balloon sticks. These will last for days!

Step 2: Make pipe cleaner legs

Bend a pipe cleaner in half and turn up each end to make two spider legs. Repeat the same step for four pipe cleaners per balloon.

Step 3: Tape legs to balloon

Use a strip of clear tape to adhere two pipe cleaner legs to each side of the balloon.
