Last year I made these spider treat cups and they were such a hit I wanted to make them on a larger scale! You don’t even need to have a party to make these!  My kids think they are the best to use for an after school treat!

How to Make Easy Spider Treat Bowls:

I trimmed 8 straws down so that they looked like reasonable spider legs.  After you trim to size, snip the end (away from the bendy part) at an angle.

Trim at an angle similar to your plastic bowl.

Then I used my hot glue gun to adhere the straws to the bowl. I found it easiest to flip the bowl over and then glue the legs on.

When the hot glue is dry, flip the bowl over and bend the straws to create legs.  These aren’t for support in any way so don’t worry if they don’t touch the table surface.

Last, I added the googly eyes to the rim of the plastic bowl!  Fill with your favorite treat and enjoy!  So easy right?

  1. Thanks for the tip to cut the straws at an angle before gluing. You could put a small piece of Styrofoam on the bottom of the bowl to make them stand up.

    Where did you find the black straws? Thanks

  2. Where did you find the black straws? I’m using pipe cleaners but it’s not that easy to bend them to make them look uniform.
