While we love how Halloween can be kooky and fun, we also love how chic and sophisticated it can be. This spider covered pumpkin brings a touch of elegance to this spooky time of year.


  • Hollow foam craft pumpkin
  • Black and gold spray paint
  • Small plastic spiders
  • Glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks


Remove any debris from exterior of pumpkin. Spray with black spray paint. If necessary, repeat with additional coats until entire surface of pumpkin is coated. Let dry completely.

Spray enough spiders with gold spray paint to cover pumpkin. Repeat with additional coats, if necessary. Let dry completely.

Beginning at top of pumpkin around the stem, place a small dot of hot glue on the underside of a spider and affix to pumpkin facing toward stem. Let dry completely. Continue this process, placing spiders next to one another, until row is completed. Repeat with additional rows, working down pumpkin, until fully covered in spiders.


STAY SAFE: Please ensure this DIY is done in a well-ventilated area.

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: While we love how sleek our pumpkin looks covered in spiders, the same dramatic effect can be achieved with a different design. Our initial idea was to scatter the spiders, working down in a cascading effect, so that there was a large cluster around the top and fewer the further down the pumpkin you went.
