Spooky Spider Pops

We’re still making goodies for our upcoming Halloween party and had so much fun creating these Spooky Spider Pops… that is after I finally found where I had stashed the bag of googly eyes. Lately it seems that I am always missing one ingredient for each project. I guess it’s time to get the craft closet more organized. Thus I digress… back to the Spooky Spider Pops.

I love edible decorations like these candy corn centerpieces and that’s exactly what this eight legged guys are. They were super easy to make and will look great on the snack table at our party.

Spooky Spider Pops - About A Mom

Here’s What You’ll Need

Black pipe cleaners
Googly eyes (small)
Craft Glue

You’ll need 4 pipe cleaners for each spider. Center 4 pipe cleaners at the base of the pop and wrap them around the stick twice so there are four legs on each side. You can wrap them around once if you like, but I think they are more sturdy when wrapped twice.

Bend the pipe cleaner ends up to form 4 feet.

Glue on googly eyes.

That’s all there is to it. This project was easy enough for the kids to do with just a little guidance. I found my inspiration for this project here.
