Use a damp paper towel or dish cloth to clean off your pumpkin to remove any dirt.  Pat completely dry.

Paint the entire pumpkin, including the stem, with the black paint. Allow to dry completely.  Seal with shelac to keep the paint from peeling.

Fold pipe cleaners in half and cut them to create the eight legs. Use the tip of a pen to poke eight small holes, 4 on each side, toward the top of the pumpkin. Carefully insert one of the pipe cleaners into each of the holes. Bend each of the pipe cleaners to look like spider legs. 

Glue the two googly eyes to the front of the pumpkin.
