Orange and black may be the most popular October colors but we decided to mix things up a bit with some brightly colored spiders and webs. This is such a fun party or playdate activity!

Start with:

  • Embroidery Hoop
  • Embroidery Thread
  •  Pom Poms
  •  Eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue (We used a hot glue gun. Supervise little hands or join in on the fun!)

Create it!

Step 1: Remove the outer hoop and tie a piece of embroidery thread to the inside hoop.

Step 2: Hold thread tightly and wrap around the inner hoop, creating a web design.

Step 3: Tie the end of the thread to the inner hoop and secure the outer hoop.


Step 4: From embroidery thread, cut four pieces, 2-3 inches in length. Make a small knot on each end of the pieces.

Step 5: Glue together two pom poms, one slightly smaller than the other.

Step 6: Glue or stick on eyes if they have an adhesive back.

Step 7: Glue legs to the underside of the spider body.

Step 8: Glue the spider to the web.

 And, if you are a fan of the traditional orange and black, feel free to use them for the web and spider if you like!
