Kids Craft: How to Make Toilet Paper Roll Spider

craftskids crafts

As a preschool teacher and mom to a crafty three-year-old, I'm always working on some sort of kids craft at home. This month, we are having fun getting ready for Halloween. Today I'm excited to be here from Brie Brie Blooms for the first time to share an easy spider craft.

How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Spider

You probably already have most of the supplies needed in your home already.


  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue (not pictured)
  • Hole punch (not pictured)
  • Black paint and paintbrush (optional and not pictured)


1. Cut the toilet paper roll in thirds. You will only be using one piece for each spider.

2. Punch four holes in the toilet paper roll. Each side will have two holes approximately 1/2" apart.

Optional Step: Paint the toilet paper roll. We used black and glitter paint mixed together.

3. Fold one pipe cleaner in half and loop through the hole punches on one side of the toilet paper roll.

4. Loop a second pipe cleaner through the same holes. Repeat on the other side of the toilet paper roll.

5. Bend the pipe cleaners to look like spider legs.

6. Glue googly eyes to the front of the toilet paper roll.

You're done! Now go find a fun spot in your home to display your new spider friend.

This project is very inexpensive and easy. I'm sure we will be making more to decorate my daughter's bedroom for Halloween!

What are some simple and inexpensive crafts you can do with your kids this Halloween?
