The trees disguised the legs enough where they didn't realize the spider was there until too late. The legs were made from rigid 1" PVC with 4" drainage pipe over them. The body was metal frame with burlap covered in driveway topping. A very durable alternative to monster mud.

I'm not big on spiders, but I LOVE this! For me personally, that's got to be the most effective spider prop I've ever seen. Fantastic job! I would like to hear more detail for a how-to if you ever have time.
