Halloween Fun with PVC Pipe!

Halloween is just around the corner! Using the basic FORMUFIT pumpkin spider plan, you can make your own PVC Black Widow Lawn Spider! It’s a great outdoor activity to do with the kids!

Some changes to the original plan were made: Instead of using 1 in. pipe and fittings, 3/4 in. pipe was used and the legs were made longer to give the spider a creepier, more sinister appearance.

Here is a list of materials needed for this project:

The PVC pipe was cut to the following lengths:

  • 8x pieces at 24 inches
  • 8x pieces at 20 inches
  • 2x pieces at 12 inches
  • 14x pieces at 2 inches

Cuts can be made with a Ratchet PVC pipe cutter or a hacksaw.

The glossy, furniture-grade PVC pipe & fittings will not deteriorate in sunlight like off-the-shelf plumbing-grade PVC does.

A large-size pumpkin can be purchased for this project at any grocery or hardware store for under $10. A little spray paint later, and voila, black widow spider!
