Christmas Spider

4 pipe cleaners
Small Christmas ornament
Med Christmas ornament


Take one pipe cleaners and fold it in half. Twist it together forming a circle the size of the med ornament in the center. Repeat with one more pipe cleaners. Place these two, one on top of the other. Wrap the ends around both pipe cleaners in opposite directions, for about ¼ inch. This will hold the circles together and place the legs about ½ inch apart. This forms the two center legs on each side. Now add one more pipe cleaner to each side. Start about ½ inch from center leg leaving enough length to form the top leg. Twist around the circles through the center legs. Stop twisting about ½ inch past the second center leg. End will form the bottom leg. Repeat on the other side. Take the top off of the ornaments. Using hot glue, glue the legs to the med ornament. Place the top of the ornament to form the neck. Glue the small ornament into the med ornament to form the head. Trim the pipe cleaners off so they are the same length. Arrange the pipe cleaners in the shape of spider legs (up around the body like a bowl, then out away from the body, then a bend for the knee, and a bend away from the body for the foot.)
