Dum Dum Sucker Spiders

This craft is easy and inexpensive to mass produce. We did 20+ assembly line style for Story Time treats, each one taking only a minute or two in total. They would be cute to hand out to trick-or-treaters or as party favors. I modified this idea from which calls for Tootsie Pops. I used the Dum Dums because I already had them. Since they are smaller than Tootsie Pops, I decided to cut the pipe cleaners in half instead of using four whole pipe cleaners (which also saved money on materials.) I bought two packages of 25 black pipe cleaners at Walmart for 77 cents each.
Materials Needed:
  • Dum Dum sucker
  • 2 black pipe cleaners
  • glue
  • wiggly eyes
  1. Cut two pipe cleaners in half.
  2. Holding all four pieces of pipe cleaner together, twist up around base of Dum Dum sucker. You now have four legs on either side of the sucker, which becomes the body of the spider.
  3. Bend and arrange pipe cleaners as desired to form the legs.
  4. Glue wiggly eyes onto center of pipe cleaners to form the head of the spider.
