Have some Halloween fun with these Spooky Spider pots, says Katherine Miller
To make these Halloween spider pots, you’ll need four chunky pipe cleaners for the spider’s legs, some eyes and a black plastic flowerpot.
I pierced four holes in each side of the pot with a skewer, then the children could thread each pipe cleaner through two holes, which made two legs.
We planted a baby spider plant into our pots which had grown on a ‘runner’ from the mother plant. The roots of the plantlet (above) can be stood in water for a week before planting into the pot to encourage growth.
