With Halloween approaching, I thought I share with you a fun project that your kids will love doing. Meet Sally & Sid…
This is a great DIY Halloween project for kids because they’re simple to make and they’re not too scary!
You will need:
1x Large polystyrene ball
1x Small polystyrene ball
1x Large skewer
1x Pink and/or black acylic paint (You need a paint that has a thick consistency)
1x Set of googly eyes
1x Hanging pin and cap
1x Polystyrene glue
Step 1. Get the small polystyrene ball and pierce it with the skewer
Step 2. Do the same with the larger polystyrene ball
Step 3. Pick up the skewer and paint the ball. By using the skewer, it allows you to paint the whole ball without getting paint on your fingers. Do the same for the other ball
Step 4. Place the skewers in a pint glass and leave to dry overnight
Step 5. Pull out the skewer and thread the pipe cleaner through it. Repeat this step another 3 times.You should now have a body with 8 legs
Step 6. Decide where you want the head to be and push the toothpick through the polystyrene ball and then attach the smaller one to it
This is how Sid will look:
Step 7. Glue on the googly eyes
Step 8. If you want to hang up the spider, you will need to attach a hanging pin and cap. Pinch together the hanging pin together and and dip into polystyrene glue…
and then push into the ball
Step 9. Draw on some fangs and there you have it… a Halloween DIY decoration
If you want to make Sally, you’ll need the same materials plus some pink acrylic paint and some fake eyelashes.
