As you can see from our pictures above, there are many creative spider costumes that you may create. There are two main elements that you should try to integrate into the costume that you elect to make. The first is the fact that most spiders have four pairs of eyes for a total of eight. The second is that most spiders have four pairs of legs, for a total of eight. While spiders come in a wide array of colors, and mixtures of colors, the most commonly used color when it comes to spider costume ideas is black. By ensuring that the costume is black, it includes eight eyes, and it has eight legs, you will find that your costume is a strong resemblance of the most frightening spiders in existence today.

While our pictures on this page likely helped you come up with ideas on how to create your costume, we are including a set of instructions below that will also assist in making a homemade costume that will allow you to dress up like an amazing arachnid:

Instructions for a Simple Spider Costume for Fall Festivities

Items Needed:
  • Black Hooded Jumper
  • 8 Large Craft Eyes
  • 6 Black Socks
  • Cotton Stuffing
  • Needle and Thread
  • Black Yarn

Step 1: On the hood of the black hooded jumper, glue the large craft eyes in pairs to look like real spider eyes.

Step 2: Stuff each of the black socks with cotton stuffing and sew them shut at the openings.

Step 3: Starting underneath the arms of the jumper, attach three of the stuffed socks on each side.

Step 4: Put the hooded jumper on and then use the black yarn to tie the black socks that are attached to the jumper to the wrist area of the arms – but, not too tight. This will attach the “legs” of the spider so that when the arms move, the corresponding sock-created arms will move, too.

If you have created a costume that looks like a spider, we encourage you to submit your pictures today. You may also submit other types of information, such as directions for making spider costumes, tips on how to create various aspects of the costume, and so on. By sharing your creativity with us, the readers that we have that are searching for spider costume ideas will benefit immensely. We look forward to seeing your pictures and instructions!
