For this craft, you will need a foam paintbrush, black acrylic paint, a Styrofoam ball, color 12-gauge aluminum wire, wire cutters, a thick marker or spool, gumdrops, gummy life savers, pieces from a candy necklace, and ball head straight pins. First, paint your Styrofoam ball black. Let it dry. Next, cut 8 pieces measuring approximately 6 to 10 inches long from the wire for the legs.

Insert each leg into the Styrofoam ball. These adorable [unk] are a sweet way to decorate your home this Halloween.
