Check out these simple step by step instructions, to create your quilling spiders, and then watch the quick video at the end to see it all in action!

Start by cutting your black construction paper into strips. A paper cutter makes it easier to keep them all even. If you want the legs to be thinner, you can cut a few skinny strips too. Just set the legs to the side for later.

Take one strip and use a dab of glue, at one end, to create a circle and glue it to your green paper.Construction Paper quilling spiders using black construction paper. Use your craft stick to roll up a strip of your paper.

It will pop open a bit, and that’s ok!  (in fact my daughter loves watching this process!) Repeat this step until the circle is full.
