Halloween Craft Thursday! A Candy Catcher!

It’s time for our last Halloween craft idea! And this one is just in time for Trick or Treat night. Check out all the fun crafts from Family Fun here: http://familyfun.go.com/halloween/halloween-crafts/halloween-decorations/candy-catcher-664765/

And remember, the idea, instructions, and photo are all from the Family Fun website linked above.

Here’s the craft:

Black poster board or heavy construction paper
Tacky glue
Small black plastic plate
2 googly eyes
Two 1-inch black pom-poms
½-inch red pom-pom
Black gift bag

1. Start with eight long, tapered legs cut from the black poster board or construction paper. (The legs should be a couple of inches longer than your gift bag. Our spider's legs are 12 inches long for our 10-inch-tall bag.) Outline the edges of each leg with tacky glue, then sprinkle on some glitter (or use glitter glue) and let them dry.
2. Transform the bottom of the plastic plate into the spider's face with a glue and glitter mouth, eyebrows, and outline, as shown. Glue on the googly eyes and black pom-poms for eyeballs and a red pom-pom nose. Let dry.
3. Attach two legs to each side of the bag, curving the tops over, then glue the face onto the front. When the glue has dried completely, your spider is ready for a night on the town
