They go under different names, spider nest, spider cocoon, mummy eggs, etc. If you would like to purchase some ready made, you can easily check out some great websites, such as, where they have an amazing halloween haven shop. Of course, since money has been a bit tight, I have opted for the frugal route and just make them myself. You could also make them in the shape of a corpse, for a hanging mummy look, although, I haven’t tried that just yet.

These eggs/nests are super easy to make, and a great halloween craft for kids too! So, here goes, the how to: halloween spider nest….
