Egg Carton Spiders

Recycling egg cartons into spiders makes a cute craft for Halloween.

Parental supervision is recommended when using wire cutters, awl, or screwdriver.

This project is rated VERY EASY to do.

What You Need:

Black paint
Paint brush
Egg carton
Awl or small phillips head screwdriver
Black chenille stems
Wire cutters
Wiggle eyes

How To Make It:

Note: Precut the carton and prepare the holes ahead of time for classroom use.

Cut the egg carton apart into little cups/sections.
Using the awl or screwdriver make 8 holes in the bottom edge of each section for the legs.
Paint the egg carton section with black paint. Let dry.
Cut the chenille stems in half.
Push the chenille stem in one side of the section and out the opposite side. Bend down the legs.
Repeat for each of the legs.
Glue on wiggle eyes.


Halloween Centerpiece

Purchase small pumpkin shaped gourds. There are always lots available in the grocery stores at this time of year. Keep the ones with pretty stems to include without candles.

Parental supervision is recommended.

This project is rated AVERAGE to do.

What You Need:

Orange pumpkin gourds
Yellow, orange and black candles
Apple corer
Florists' adhesive clay, optional
Dried leaves or vines, as desired

How To Make It:

Break off the stalk from the gourds.
Use an apple corer to make a bigger indentation in the top for a candle.
Note: If the gourd is too hard to do this, get some florists' adhesive clay and use that to hold the candle in the top.

Insert a candle.
Make a centerpiece with several candleholder gourds and some of the ones (with nice stalks) that you saved.
Scatter in some fall (dried) leaves or vines, whatever you can find. Use your imagination!
