Trash Bag Spider  
  Nothing says Halloween like giants spiders. These do it yourself ones are fun to make and are the perfect addition to your outdoor halloween decorations or for your classroom or office. Grab nine black trash bags and leftover newspaper. Make the body by stuffing one bag full and tying it closed.  Then halfway fill the other eight trash bags long ways and connect them with tape to the big bag that you already filled. Now you have a creepy, crawly spider!
