These DIY Glitter Spiders are sure to add sparkle to your Halloween decor. Add them to wreaths, Halloween-tiered tray, or hang them as ornaments.
They only take a few minutes to make plus a little extra for drying time. I also made bat and ghost ornaments and they came out cute too! You check those out here–> Ghost and Bat Cork Ornaments
Anyways, back to making glitter spiders. I used nightlight bulbs from the dollar store and black pipe cleaners to make these cute little guys. You only need a few supplies, so let’s get started!
- Nightlight bulbs
- Mod Podge in Gloss
- A paintbrush or foam applicator
- Long black chenille stems (pipe cleaners, about 12-inches long)
- Hot glue
How to Make DIY Glitter Spiders
Start by evenly coating a lightbulb with Mod Podge.
Then sprinkle glitter generously to coat and let dry for about 2 hours.

When the glitter layer is dry, coat with Mod Podge again. This will seal everything and keep the glitter from getting everywhere!
Twist four chenille sticks in the center. Twist about 3-times to make sure they won’t come apart.
Grab a milk jug, a plastic folder, and a hula hoop to make this fun wreath!

Use one chenille stick to make the head. Wrap it around the base of the light bulb, hot gluing where needed.
Hot glue the legs to the bottom of the bulb. Then bend the legs to finish your spider!
