If you’re looking to freak out trick or treaters this Halloween, you need to make this giant porch spider. It’s massive and it’s a spider, so obviously it’s a lil’ creepy. However the googly eyes give it a friendly nature and stop it being too scary.
Even though this spider is so large, it’s really simple to make, which is why it’s on our list of easy Halloween decorations. And what’s better than an awesome looking decoration that’s easy to make? One that’s cheap too! This spider is made out of re-purposed supplies, making it super budget friendly.
