Sticky spider web craft

Supplies needed:
black paper plate
contact paper
black piece of construction paper
small plastic spiders (make sure the bottom part of the spider is flat and not raised so it will stick more easily. I bought a pack of 50 from the dollar store)

To start cut out the center part of the paper plate then stick the paper plate to a piece of contact paper, trimming any extra around the plate. Next cut your piece of contruction paper into approx. 1/2 inch strips. I gave the paper plate and strips of paper to E and let him build his web sticking them where ever he wanted.  Once the web is built, you can start adding the spiders. E loved this part because he could stick and unstick them as many times as he wanted.

DIY Halloween Decor

Supplies needed:
glass jar
black cardstock
   Collect a handful of branches. Trim the ends so they are roughly the same in length.
 Place the branches in a glass jar or vase.
 Using black cardstock, trace and cut out the bats. I used this template for the bats.
 Poke a small hole at the top of the bats head and loop a piece of thread through.
 Hang from the bats from the branches.
