I was going to wait until at least September to post my first Halloween craft but I’m sharing this one a little early because I love how it turned out. And who doesn’t love an easy paper plate craft? The personalized hand print spider gives it the perfect touch! This would be cute to do every year with your kids and they can see how big their spider gets.

What you need
The first step we did was the hand print spider. Pick out what color of construction paper you’d like to use and have your child use both hands to make the hand prints on top of each other facing opposite ways to represent the spider like the one above. Once it dries you can add googly eyes or personalize it with a Halloween message but that’s totally up to you! While the hand prints dry you can work on the wreath, cut up your tissue paper into small squares and cut the middle out of your paper plate.
Start scrunching up the squares of tissue paper and apply with glue onto the paper plate wreath form. This is up to your child however they’d like to decorate it whether they want it full and fluffy with a lot of tissue paper or spreading them out all over! Once your hand print spider is dried you can cut around it and glue it onto your wreath once the tissue paper is finished drying. Finally when you’re done personalizing it, tie a string or a cute ribbon around it and show off your new Halloween wreath or this would make the perfect gift for the grandparents!
