Material List:

Several wire coat hangers or similar wire - the stronger the hanger the better they will support the weight of the Spider's body.

Aluminum Foil - The heaviest duty kind that you can afford. The amount of foil needed will depend on the size of spider that you are making.

(Optional) Sraypaint or a tube of Acrylic paint - Some people may want to leave their spiders with a metallic finish, so paint is optional.

Time Needed:

Once you get good at making this creepy suckers, you'll be able to slap them together in about fifteen minutes, not counting the time needed to paint them.
