DIY Needle Felted Spiders



Last month I shared this over at Whipperberry.  I absolutely love needle felting.  The possibilites are endless with what you can make!  I made these cute little spiders for Halloween this year (and fortunately, only suffered a few puncture wounds in the process.)

What you'll need:
Wool Roving
Needl Felting Tool
E6000 Glue
Colored Paper Clips

Pull a piece of your wool roving apart from the rest and wrap it in a tight little ball.  Start stabbing away!  Be careful not to poke yourself because these needles are sharp!  Keep stabbing until the ball feels more dense and the  lines from wrapping it have disappeared.  Add some color by putting spots on it!  You could even wrap 2 different colors into the ball to give it a swirly look.

Next use your colored paperclips for legs!  Cut them or just bend them into the size and shape you want.  Use some glue to make sure they stay attached.


I'm not much of a Halloween fan, but I definitely appreciate adorable decorations.  When else can you display a cute needle felted spider and it be acceptable?


Here are some of our Halloween projects from last year.
