Kids craft | Halloween spider free printable

I guess you could say I'm not a fan of spiders and in the fall they go into overdrive building their webs all over the place.  Maybe they are getting ready for Halloween?  Whatever the case these little spiders are much cuter.  Simply print them on cardstock, let the kids color them, attach a length of string or cord and hang them from light fixtures, the ceiling, whatever.  Hang several at different lengths for a fun party decoration too!

You will need:

Printer and card stock paper

Needle and white thread

Crayons, markers, colored pencils


Clear tape

Glow in the dark dimensional fabric paint (optional)

1.  Print the spiders on cardstock.  Color the spiders with crayons, markers, pencils as desired.

2.  Dot the eyes with the optional glow in the dark dimensional paint and let dry.

3.  Cut out the spiders and place them back to back.  Using a needle and thread punch through both spiders in the top center. Tie a knot with the ends of the thread. (Have fun putting different colored spiders together so when it spins different spider will appear)

4.  Use clear tape to attach the hanging spiders from light fixtures, ceilings, etc.  Vary the lengths of thread.
