Make giant spiders to decorate with this Halloween! This is a sponsored post with Fairfield World but all ideas and opinions are my own.

I like to come up with a decorating theme every Halloween. Last year my theme was creepy dolls, which was easy to do and really freaked people out! The year before was a personal favorite: Carnevil. That set up got the attention of a local reporter, and the local newspaper did a whole spread to showcase our haunted home. This year I’m going with a theme I’ve always wanted to do: MAKE GIANT SPIDERS. EEK!

I remember being young when the movie Arachnophobia came out. That movie scared the heck out of me! I actually don’t mind spiders that much, but when there are a LOT of them? YIKES! These creepy crawlies make my skin crawl, so of course I had to use them for a Halloween decorating theme.

My spiders are very light, thanks to Poly-Fil Dark, but I wasn’t sure that store bought webs would be strong enough to hold them up. My solution? Quilt batting!!! It’s affordable and easy to work with. I was able to stretch it and tear it to create the illusion of heavy webs all over my porch. Once I add lights and a fog machine this scene will be especially spooky. Spiders and giant webs? EEK!

I made a video tutorial (it’s at the top of the post) because it’s so much easier to show how I made them than it is to write it all out. I hope you enjoy the instructions and that you’ll make a few of your own.

These giant spiders look super creepy at night, and they will look like they’re moving when we add the fog machine and lighting. Happy Haunting!
