This planter is not only fun and creepy, it’s easy to make. All of the materials for this DIY halloween idea were found at the local dollar store. We stocked up on a bunch of tiny and medium sized spiders for our planter, but you can definitely add some other creepy crawlies too!

What you’ll need:
- Black or grey flower pot
- Tissue paper
- Cotten spider web
- Fake spiders
- Spider webbing
- Tall cylindrical vase (or similar to give some height)
Firstly, add some tissue paper to the bottom of the pot, this will give the glass cylinder something to sit securely on while filling in some space.
Secondly, place the cylindrical vase into the middle of the vase, this will help create some height for the planter.
Next, add some of the spider webbing, the type you find in the halloween section at the dollar store. Place it around the vase and covering the vase completely.
Next, add the cotton and regular spider webbing. When searching in the dollar store we found some cotton webs in grey and black, which looks great with the grey pot. Add the white spider webbing first, placing it into the cylinder with some tiny spiders thrown. Cascade it out of the cylinder and into the pot. Add the cotton webbing next, drape some around and on top of the vase, once again cascading down into the pot.
Finally, add the creepy spiders and other crawlers if you have them. Be sure to stick some into the vase and have them “crawling” out.
There you have it, a perfectly creepy halloween spider planter!! We hope you liked this dollar store DIY Outdoor Halloween Idea – Creepy Spider Planter!
