HOW TO MAKE a Dollar Tree Whisk Spider 

Start by making your messy bow. This will be the base of the spider. Use scissors to place small cuts about 1″ inch apart across the length of your Halloween fabric. You can simply rip the fabric at the start of each cut to create your strips.

Cut the strips in half again. Make the bow larger or smaller by the amount of fabric strips that you use. For this messy bow I used approximately 12-15 strips.

Cut your ribbon in the same length as your fabric. Simply lay all of the pieces in a criss-cross circular pattern until all the scraps are used. This really does not take long at all. Start to finish this only takes about 10 minutes.

Attach the fun craft googly spider eyes into the center of the messy bow using the zip tie to secure.

First take each section of the whisk and bend them back so they are spread out on all sides of the whisk base.

NEXT…

Cut the top middle of each individual wire of the whisk with wire cutters. These are going to be the spider’s legs.

Bend each of the wires to create the spider legs. I removed two of the wires to make four legs on each side of the whisk.

NEXT…

Hot glue your messy bow to the center of the whisk base.

THAT’S IT!

There are so many fun ways to decorate with these spiders. I placed it on top of a small jar. You can use mason jars, add it to a tray. Simply place it on a side table, or in a Halloween vignette. I hope you enjoyed this darling Halloween whisk spider. Let me know if you give it a try!
