As Halloween approaches, I feel like the girls and I haven’t really had a chance to make many fun Halloween crafts, so we decided this week that we would make some spooky Halloween Paper Plate Spider Craft put on our windows! So that when our neighbors drive by they get a little bit of spookiness and fright! Most likely to scare this mama who does not in the bit like spiders!

Halloween Paper Plate Spider Craft
We love easy crafts because there’s not much work into them and at the same time they turn out super cute. We love displaying them around our home and I used to show off my student’s art skills by decorating our classrooms with them.
- Paper plate
- Black paint
- Paint brush
- Large googly eyes
- Craft glue
- Black construction paper cut into 8 strips
This craft is super easy to make and your kids will love every second creating them.
- Have your child paint one side of the paper plate completely black. Allow paint to dry.
- Glue on googly eyes on your spider. I would have gone with 8 or 12 small googly eyes just for fun, but the girls really wanted two large eyes.
- To create the crinkly legs cut 8 strips of black construction paper. Then have your child fold the strips forward and then back to get the accordion effect on the spider’s legs.
I always love adding these to our crafts because it really helps my youngest work on her fine motors skills and hand-eye coordination.
These look so cute hanging in our living room windows and I think that our neighbors are really enjoying the girl’s artwork being displayed for all of them to enjoy as well!
