HALLOWEEN SPIDERS


Halloween is just around the corner!  Spooky things ahead!
I've been whipping up some crochet spiders for the occasion.  The legs where the tricky part for me.  I wanted the spiders to be able to stand up and all look a bit different.  Then it occurred to me, PIPE CLEANERS! DUH!  (though, apparently they're not called pipe cleaners any more, did you know? 'Chenille sticks' now! )
I didn't like pipe cleaners sticking out on their own so I wrapped yarn around them but left little gaps so the fluff was still sticking out here and there.  After all, big spiders have hairy legs!



Over and out!
