2 black garbage bags
1 twist tie, or piece of string/twine/yarn/pipe cleaner whatever
Step One: Cut your first bag into 8 strips. Leave the seam of the bottom of the bag intact, so the legs are spooky long
Step Two: Turn second bag inside out, crumple the bottom of the bag together, tie an elastic around the bag (this is to make the front of the spider gathered).
Step Three: Turn bag right-side out. Fill it with 6 or 7 crumpled newspaper sheets
Step Four: Hold the bag so the newspaper is all at the gathered end (the end with the elastic), and twist tie it off - not too tight. Fuss with it a little to make the head sorta round.
Step Five: Fill the bag with 10-12 more crumpled papers so the butt is bigger than the head
Step Six: Tie the ends of the garbage bag together, and stuff the end pieces back into the butt
Step Seven: Grab four legs, open them (unfold them at the seam), tie them around the neck (where the twist tie is). Grab the remaining four legs and tie them around neck as well. YOU ARE DONE! (If it is an inside spider, you can add some eyes...this bad boy will hang from our covered doorway outside, so that all the kiddies have to pass under him. I will add a bunch of store bought white spider webs too)
