I’ve got to give most of the credit for these Halloween wreaths to my 7-year-old. She’s got some great ideas.

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.

I love it when the kids take over. They’re ideas are always so much better than my own!

And because my daughter called the shots, the craft not only turned out cute, but it was also a fun process for her.

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, since you’ll need sharp scissors to do this task.

Flip your paper plate so that the bottom side is facing up and then paint the entire wreath orange.

If you don’t want an orange wreath, 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 (several feet!). 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. Go back and forth, sideways, diagonally, and around and around.

Keep wrapping until you reach the end of your yarn piece.

Secure the other end of the yarn to the back of your wreath with tape.

Finally, you can add your spider to your spider web wreath. (Or do like we did and add many spiders!)

We found that using small pieces of yarn to tie our spider rings to the web worked best. Add as many spiders as you want. We had a few busy, busy spider webs!
