Craft: Jumping Pom Pom Spiders

These Pom-Pom Spiders are so easy to assemble. Make one or make a whole spider family!


  • assorted craft pom poms (one per spider)
  • pipe cleaners or yarn
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • elastic thread


Step 1: Glue 2 pom poms together.

Step 2: Now attach 8 spider legs (4 on each side) to one of the pom poms (this will be the body or thorax of your spider).

Step 3: Add your googly eyes.

Step 4: Measure an arms length of elastic string and tie it to the thorax pom pom.

Step 5: Wait for all the glue to completely dry and then take it out for a jump!
