Spider build

I have seen several spiders on here better than mine, but it is still a crowd pleaser. I built this about 3 or 4 years ago. Every year I touch up the paint and position it differently. When Halloween is over, I move it a bit every day and have it climb over the fence into the backyard. I was inspired to do that by a neighbor who was out of town for Halloween and her daughter was disappointed she missed my setup. Her Mom

That is a great looking spider! :)
Awesome spider! Having it slowly leave like that is absolutely spectacular! Never thought of something like that but I love it!

I like the use of the fabric and foam. I did my legs with foam direct on the PVC, but like your method.
The spray foam gets brittle and gross after a few years but I don鈥檛 know what else to use on props!

I used great stuff on my large pumpkin Sentinel to hide the PVC and painted that to hide that it was great stuff. I do a little touch up paint each year when I pull it out. I haven鈥檛 had any problems with degradation but then again mine doesn鈥檛 stay out all month so maybe that鈥檚 the difference.
