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!
