With just a few on-hand items you can have your own adorable paper plate spider. Kids 6 and up will have fun creating something on their own that will add to the season. The paper plate spider makes a good group project and is a nice alternative to the spooky decorations available at Halloween.

What you'll need:

  • A small paper or foam plate
  • Black felt
  • Large googly eyes
  • A hole punch
  • 4 pipe cleaners cut in half
  • Glue
How to make your Halloween spider craft:
  1. Glue the felt to the paper plate and secure snugly on the back to keep the circle shape.
  2. Glue on the googly eyes.
  3. Punch four holes on each side of the plate through the felt.
  4. Insert one piece of pipe cleaner for each hole. Twist to secure. You can bend the legs into any shape you desire once they are attached to the plate.
