    Default Trash Bag Tarantula to make for Halloween

    Trash Bag Tarantula

    Invoke this dread weaver yard decoration from lawn bags and leaves.

    ? 18 large black trash bags
    ? Leaves or newspaper
    ? Black electrical tape
    ? Large red plastic party cups
    ? Clothesline, optional

    Step 1:
    ???the spider's body, stuff one trash bag full of dry leaves (you can
    also use crumpled newspaper). Tie the bag closed, then flip it upside
    down. To make the head, stuff a second bag (not as full as the
    first), tie it closed, and tape it to the body.

    Step 2:
    To make one of the legs, roll up two garbage bags together
    lengthwise. Wrap them with electrical tape at both ends and at two
    points along the leg to make joints. Roll up seven more legs, then
    cut four small slits in each side of the spider's body and slip the
    legs in place.

    Step 3:
    Cut the white lip off two of the red plastic cups, then tape them
    onto the spider's body to make his beady red eyes. For the fangs, cut
    two triangles out of the third plastic cup (or another piece of white
    plastic) and tape them onto the spider so that the white side faces

    Step 4:
    Perch the spider atop a big pile of relatively dry leaves. To create
    a web for her, simply weave and tie lengths of clothesline or twine
    across your porch. For an extra scary effect, tie a few unlucky
    stuffed animals to her web.
