Wire Cutters #7781 9151
Low Temp Glue Gun #7753 6417 & Glue Sticks #7753 3638
Optional: 12” dowel, elastic thread and sewing needle
Use the wire cutters to cut the chenille stems in half, creating four 6” stems. For each stem, bend in about ½” on both ends and twist to secure to create the feet. Bend each stem into an “M” shape to create the four sets of legs.
Take all four legs together and twist together in the center. Glue this center to the 1 ½” pom pom (body). Spread out the legs under the body.
Place the 1” pom pom on top of the body and glue in place for the head. Glue the two 7mm moving eyes onto the head. Tie a small bow with the ribbon and glue to the side of the neck.
Optional: If you want to make a bouncing spider toy, you can sew a length of thread through the body, secure with a knot and tie the other end to the wood dowel.
