Introducing my pipe cleaner spider garland! Sometimes I laugh when I think about my favorite crafting materials… pipe cleaners, pom-poms, yarn… I’m still crafting with the same tools I loved as a kid! Having these simple supplies in my craft cabinet just makes me happy (and my girls happy too!). I love the challenge of using them in new, more sophisticated ways. I hope this spider garland is an example of that. I think it’s just the right combination of creepy, crawly, and fun!

I think pipe cleaners were always meant to be spiders. They bend perfectly into little legs – and you can bend them in all different configurations so no two spiders look alike.

Step 2: Create spider body

Take the top of the folded pipe cleaners, bend it over about an inch and twist the pipe cleaners together. This forms the body of your spider.

Step 5: Thread spiders onto twine

Thread your darning needle with twine or string the length you want for your garland. Push the needle through the body of the spider. Continue to string the rest of the spiders onto the garland. You can slide them around easily to space them out as you want!
