16 Awesome Homemade Halloween Decorations

12. Huge Black Spider

Start Halloween night off right by greeting your trick-or-treaters with a huge black spider! I like this idea for a large shrub or bush covered in spider webbing. A milk jug (with the top cut off and cleaned thoroughly), black Duct tape and black pipe insulation is all you will need to make this eight-legged friend.

Tips:

  • You can also use spray painted styrofoam balls in place of the milk jug (one large for the body and one a little smaller for the head).
  • Glue feathers from a black boa all over the body to make it hairy!
  • Cut small triangles out of the pipe insulation where you want the legs to bend, and then use duct tape to secure it in a bent position.
  • Use ping pong balls or large googley eyes for the eyes, and add detail to the body with paint if you’d like.
