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!


How to Make DIY Glitter Spiders

Coat the bulb with Mod Podge.

When the glitter layer is dry, coat with Mod Podge again. This will seal everything and keep the glitter from getting everywhere!

Add a coat of Mod Podge over the glitter to seal.

Twist four chenille sticks in the center. Twist about 3-times to make sure they won’t come apart.

Twist four chenille in the middle 3-times to make the legs.
