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
???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.
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.
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
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.
