This spider web craft is a really simple craft for Halloween, and the finished spider webs make great Halloween decorations!
Paper plates - either buy black ones or paint them black
White yarn or string
Coloured pipe cleaners
Cut slits around the outside of your paper plate about a centimetre or so apart. Tie a knot in the end of the yarn then wrap it around the paper plate hooking it through the slits to form the web. You can either attempt a pattern, or let the child just choose to put the yarn wherever they like for a more random pattern.
To make the spiders, cut four lengths from a pipe cleaner and use one of the pieces to wrap around the other three to hold them all in place. Glue firmly to the back of a small cardboard circle and decorate with googly eyes on the other side. When the spider is dry use plenty of glue to fix it into the web.
