How to make the Halloween Spider Paper Plate Craft
Start by creating a gray shade with the paint then paint the paper plate gray.
Make the spider parts by cutting small circles and rectangular pieces then attach them all together. Use a marker to add some details. Once done, it should look like the image below.
Gently fold the tip of the feet of the spider then attach the spider to the popsicle stick. Complete the background by drawing some web lines on the paper plate.
Lastly, make a slit on the paper plate where you can insert the popsicle stick and make the spider move around.
Good job! You now have your own Halloween Spider Paper Plate Craft!
