I’ve got to give most of the credit for these spider web wreaths to my 7-year-old.
I had a much different wreath in mind and only got as far as the first step before she took over and made the perfect spider web wreath.
This Halloween spider web wreath is fun to make and appropriate for preschoolers as well as elementary-aged kids.

How to make a Spider Web Wreath
Start by cutting the middle out of your paper plate. If you’re working with young kids, you may want to do this step ahead of time.
Flip your paper plate so that the bottom side is facing up and then paint the entire wreath orange.
Another fun option would be to paint your paper plate black and use orange yarn for your spider web.
Let the paint dry.
Once your wreath is dry, cut a long length of orange yarn. It needs to be long enough to wrap around the plate many times for your spider web.
Tape one end of the yarn to the back of your wreath with clear tape.
Start wrapping the yarn around the wreath in all different directions. Keep wrapping until you reach the end of your yarn piece.
Secure the other end to the back of the wreath with tape.
Finally, you can add your spider to your spider web wreath. (Or do like we did and add many spiders!)
Use small pieces of yarn to tie as many spider rings to your web as you would like. We had a few busy, busy spider webs!
