8 Pcs x 1/2 inch 45-degree street elbows
8 Pcs x 1/2 inch x 10 inch black pipes
8 Pcs x 1/2 inch 90-degree elbows
8 Pcs x 1/2 inch x 14 inch black pipes
8 Pcs x 1/2 inch caps
Sealant or outdoor spray paint
Step 1. Weatherproof Your Creation:
a. To protect your pipe spider from the elements, clean your pipe and fittings with soap and water and wipe down any excess moisture. Once fully dry, apply a coat of outdoor spray paint or sealant. This will help prevent rusting and ensure it lasts throughout the Halloween season.
Step 2. Let it Dry:
a. Allow the paint or sealant to dry thoroughly according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Step 3. Assemble the Spider Legs:
a. Begin by creating the spider's legs. For each leg, assemble the following components in this order:
1 Pc - 1/2 inch 45-degree street elbow
1 Pc - 1/2 inch x 10 inch black pipe
1 Pc - 1/2 inch 90-degree elbow
1 Pc - 1/2 inch x 14 inch black pipe
1 Pc - 1/2 inch cap
b. Repeat Step 1 to create all eight spider legs. Ensure that the components are tightly connected, but don't overtighten, as it may damage the pipes.
Step 4. Arrange the Spider Legs:
a. Find a suitable spot in your lawn where you'd like to display your spider.
b. Carefully insert the 1/2 inch 45-degree street elbows at equal intervals into the grass to provide stability for the spider. You should have four on each side, forming an octagonal shape.
Step 5. Position the Jack-o'-Lantern:
a. Place your Jack-o'-Lantern in the center of the octagon, where the legs meet. Make sure it's stable and securely positioned.
Step 6. Adjust the Legs:
a. Once all eight legs are attached, adjust them as needed to ensure the spider looks balanced and the Jack-o'-Lantern is centered and secure.
Step 7. Display and Enjoy:
a. Once your spider is dry and weatherproof, place it in your lawn as part of your outdoor Halloween decorations. Watch as it adds a spooky and festive touch to your Halloween setup.
Be cautious when working with pipes and fittings, as sharp edges may be present. Wear gloves to protect your hands.
Ensure your spider is securely positioned in the grass to prevent it from tipping over.
Keep the Jack-o'-Lantern away from open flames or heat sources to avoid any fire hazards.
