I don’t know where the craft world would be without toilet paper rolls. I just love this cute little spider. Every time I look at this little guy, I smile.

For one spider:

  • Toilet paper Roll
  • Black Paint
  • Scissors
  • Google Eyes
  • Low temp. glue gun, tacky glue, or glue of your choice
  • *Optional – Dixie Cup – if you want to use your spider as a treat holder

  • When that’s dry, cut the legs by cutting strips down the tube about 1/4 inch wide stopping about 2 inches from the top. You’ll end up with something that looks more like a squid, but no worries, look at the next step.

  • Cut the extra legs from the spider, – 2 in the front and 2 in the back –  leaving you with 8 legs
  • Bend the legs up so they are flat against the table
  • Give the ends of each leg a bend down toward the table
  • Add google eyes with glue

To add treats:

  • If you plan on putting treats in your spider – cut the end of the Dixie cup to fit into the toilet paper tube
  • push the small bottom of the Dixie cup into the toilet paper tube. It should wedge itself, but if you need a tighter fit, then you can add glue to secure it
  • Add treats. The weight of the treats will squash him down a bit
