You’ll need one Tootsie Pop, two pipe cleaners and two googly eyes for each Tootsie Pop Spider.

To start, cut the pipe cleaners in half. Each pipe cleaner should be 12 inches long so cut on the 6″ mark to make sure that they’re all the same size. Place 4 pipe cleaners together and make sure they’re all even. These will serve as the spiders’ legs.

Then, set a Tootsie Pop a little off center on the pipe cleaners. Wrap the longer side around the stick of the Tootsie Pop and twist just a little to tighten. Spread out the “legs” evenly and then make a L-shaped bend at the end of each leg.

Note: The first one is the hardest. After you get the hang of it you’ll be assembling these in no time.

Next, give the spider eyes by placing two googly eyes on the top of the spider’s body. If you can’t find the adhesive googly eyes, pull out the hot glue gun and place a dab of hot glue onto each eye to adhere to the spider.
