If you’ve taken a look around my blog, you’ll see that no carve pumpkins are one of my family’s favorite Halloween activities! We’ve made everything from a flowery unicorn pumpkin to a Harry Potter pumpkin and I’ve even made pumpkins on our local lifestyle show, Suncoast View.

It’s so much easier to make no carve pumpkins than to pull out the knives (even though these cool pumpkin carvings are pretty awesome). Plus, since we use $1 foam pumpkins, it’s cheap too. Easy and cheap just happens to be my favorite combination when it comes to Halloween crafts…or any craft for that matter!

Ready to make your own giant spider pumpkin? Here’s what you’ll need:



  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks (this cordless glue gun is a game changer!)
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush

Spider Pumpkin

Start with a cheap foam pumpkin. I totally stock up on these as soon as I see them hit the Dollar Tree every year.

Paint it with purple acrylic paint. You’ll need 2-3 coats.

While you wait for the paint to dry, cut the chenille into eight equal pieces.

Bend each piece in the middle.

Bend the bottom of the chenille slightly inward and hot glue to the bottom of the pumpkin.

Glue the rest of the spider legs to the bottom of the pumpkin, then remove all the random hot glue strings. I get them everywhere, as you can see.

Glueing eight legs on spider pumpkin

Give the glue a minute to set, then turn over your spider pumpkin and adjust the legs.

Now add the wiggly eyes.

Add a mouth (I used a small piece of craft foam) and your spider pumpkin is complete.
