How to Make a Spider Egg Sac Halloween Decoration: Step by Step Tutorial
Read through these step by step directions before making spider egg sac DIY Halloween decorations.
Step 1 – Blow up water balloons to make spider eggs
Step 2 – Mix white glue with water in equal parts
Use equal parts of white glue and water; mix them together to make a watered-down glue solution for the yarn.
Step 3 – Add white yarn to the glue solution
Carefully place the white yarn into the glue solution to soak. Make sure you leave an end of the yarn on the side of the bowl so you can find it to make spider egg sacs.
Step 4 – Wrap balloons with yarn
Next, wrap each balloon with white yarn to make spider eggs. Do your best to wind the yarn and wrap it around and around in several directions to create a spider egg.
Step 5 – Allow Spider Egg Halloween Decoration to Dry
Tie a dry piece of yarn around the knot on the balloon and hang it to dry for at least 24 hours. The yarn will be hard when it’s dry.
Step 6 – Pop balloons and remove from the inside of the spider egg craft
Use a needle a pair of scissors, or a sharp knife to pop the balloon inside each spider egg and gently remove it from the inside of the spider craft. Work carefully so your spider egg sac does not collapse.

Spider Egg Craft Photo Tutorial
It became a challenge to take pictures when my daughter and I were making spider egg sacs because our hands got filled with glue! We did our best to show how to wrap each balloon with yarn in the spider egg sac photo tutorial below.
In my daughters’ excitement to pop the balloons once our spider eggs were dry, she forgot to allow mommy to take pictures of them when they were hanging to dry–doh!!
Not to worry, all you need to do is tie a piece of yarn to the knot of the balloon and hang spider egg craft to dry for about 24 hours.
