We used common craft supplies to make these adorable yarn and popsicle stick spider webs for Halloween! They’re super easy to make and make the perfect Halloween decorations for your home or classroom.

• Popsicle sticks

• Glue (or a hot glue gun)

• Tempera paint in Halloween colors (This is my favorite tempera paint! It doesn’t have a strong smell, and I love the bold colors.)

• Yarn in black, white, and/or orange.

• Scissors

• Optional: Spider stickers

1.  Glue three popsicle sticks together. I used a hot glue gun to eliminate the wait time for drying.

2. Paint your popsicle sticks with tempera paint.

3. Once the paint has dried, cut off a long piece of yarn.

Tie one end to a popsicle stick.

Wrap your yarn around each popsicle stick. (Although preschoolers most likely will not able to make their yarn look exactly like a spider web, they can still wrap yarn around the popsicle sticks in any way they choose. They’ll still be proud of their finished Halloween decoration and even gain some fine motor practice too!)

4. Once your done wrapping the yarn, tie the end to a popsicle stick. Leave a tail of yarn for hanging your spider web.

5. Add a spider to your web if you’d like! We added a sticker spider to our web,

Balloons turned into a simple Jack-o’-Lanter 

Turn simple balloons into jack-o’-lantern favors with this easy craft! Will you make yours silly or scary? This fun DIY is great for young kids and make perfect favors for school carnivals or a kid-friendly Halloween party. All it takes are a few party supplies and some creativity, and you’ll be ready to invite guests to pick a candy-filled pumpkin from the patch!

Materials 

• Balloons (Latex Balloons in Orange and Yellow)

• Helium tank

• Black permanent marker

• Green curling ribbon

Steps

1. Gently stretch an orange 9″ balloon. Inflate balloon with helium. (Tip: A helium tank is easy to use when inflating latex balloons. To use, slide a balloon onto the nozzle-specially designed to grip the balloon by the neck-fill to desired size, remove, and tie off.)

2. Draw freehand facial features onto inflated balloons with a permanent marker. Create a jack-o’-lantern face for your balloon pumpkin-these can be cute or scary!

3. Finish by tying a piece of green and brown garland onto the end of your balloon using green curling ribbon. These balloons should stand up all on their own. Now make enough to fill your pumpkin patch!
