Paper Plate Spider Candy Holder

My friend Beth and her kids were over, and the boys wanted to do a craft. This spider craft was perfect for them.

It is a simple craft that turned out great. They were so proud.

Supplies needed: -2 Paper plates, black paint, brush, glue, scissors, black and white construction paper and pipe stem cleaner.

The back of our black plates were white, so we painted the back of them black.
Cut paper plate in half.

Cut out eight legs. and glue them on the rim of the front side of the plate.

Glue 2nd black plate to the first. Glue the fronts together forming a pocket.

Cut second plate to be even with the first.

Cut out eyes and glue on.

Glue pipe stem cleaner to the back forming a hanger.

I think this would be cute for a little one who was going trick-or-treating to only a few houses.

The boys loved their spiders.

Making these will make your kids dance.
