You can personalise your spiders however you like, you might like to do some girly lollipop spiders with pink legs, or red and black legs for devilish looking spiders, the options are endless. You could also use different types of lollies to give them different shaped faces and cut some of the pipe cleaners shorter to make baby spiders with smaller legs.
