Simple Halloween spider web craft

Weaving a web of fun

The kids will love spinning their own spider webs with this simple craft that even the younger kids can enjoy. Once the kids have made their webs you can hang them in the window as the perfect spooky sun catcher (or moon catcher) for Halloween.

What you'll need:

  • paper plate
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • tape
  • plastic spider ring

What you'll do:

Use your scissors to cut out the center of the plate.

Use your hole punch to cut out holes along the rim of the plate.

Cut about 6 feet of yarn, then feed the end of the yarn through one of the holes. Use the tape to secure it in place to the back of the plate.

Feed the other end of the yarn through another hole, then continue weaving the yarn back and forth to form the web. Secure the end on the back with tape.

Cut a slit in the spider ring (if there isn't one already) and slide it onto the yarn.

Cut another 6-inch length of yarn and thread it through two holes at the top of the plate. Secure it in place with tape.

Grab a piece of tape and hang the spider web in the window.
