This is not my original idea, I found it and then pinned it on my Inspiration Board on Pinterest http://makingofamom.com/craft-stick-spider-craft/ ….. and then made a few minor alterations.
I have never used lolly pop sticks in my crafting before, but they kept cropping up during my Pinterest browsing, something I always do in bed for about half an hour before turning off the light …. so finally I decided to get me a few packs to play with, and this spider was the first thing I decided to make.
I coloured the sticks using a black Sharpie pen. Positioning the sticks to get an evenly spaced, convincing spider leg combo was a bit tricky, but in the end I got there, securing them with a “tacky” PVA glue.
I can’t believe that I didn’t have any black card to use for the spiders body, but this corrugated card turned out to be a much better substitute, because it added some texture. I punched it with a large, scallop edged circle punch and then again coloured it with a black Sharpie.
