This Paper Plate Spider makes such a cute holiday craft. Halloween is such a fun time for making crafting. My daughter LOVES spiders. Where I don't love REAL LIFE spiders, I think that these Spiders made out of Paper Plates are pretty darn cute! The best part-- is they are super easy and make the perfect Halloween craft for a Preschool Class or a halloween party. All of these items can be purchased online at Amazon or at a local craft store and give you enough pieces to make multiple Paper Plate Spiders. These would be cute taped on the wall for a Spider Halloween decoration or put a string though the middle and hang it from the ceiling for a spookier look! Either way your child will have fun making them and feel excited to have them showcased in your house!

It would also be fun to enjoy these Jelly Bean Pumpkins, Candy Corn Sugar cookies and Oreo Cookie Ball Pumpkins at a Halloween party with the Paper Plate Spider.
