white pipe cleaners
black pipe cleaners
hot glue, glue gun
Begin by cutting a large circle into the center of your plate. Try to make the circle nice and even but leave some room around the edges to attach the web.
Turn the plate so the main side is exposed. By main side I mean the side you would typically be eating on. Add some hot glue around the rim of the plate.
Take segments of white pipe cleaner and run it across the plate, pressing the ends to the hot glue. Repeat, crossing the pieces of pipe cleaner as you go to create a web effect.
Trim any extra pipe cleaner so it is not hanging off the edge of the plate.
Create a small pipe cleaner spider. Take a piece of black pipe cleaner and coil it up. You can then glue on small segments of additional black pipe cleaner for legs.
Turn the plate over revealing the nice clean web. You can then glue the spider to the web or side of the plate.
Your paper plate pipe cleaner spider is now ready to be displayed!
This craft would be perfect in a preschool or elementary school classroom. This would also be a fantastic Halloween craft to do at home with your little ones. Either way, kids will enjoy so much placing this around the house in hopes of scaring onlookers!
