Have fun with these easy crafts from FamilyFun magazine.
Paint a wooden clothespin black using acrylic paint. While it’s drying, go to familyfunmag.com/printables, download our wing template, and cut it out. Use a pencil to trace two wings onto black cardstock. Cut them out. Fold over a tab on the base of each wing and glue them to the sides of the clothespin.
Never miss a local story.
Paint three craft sticks silver and let them dry. Glue them together at the center, forming an asterisk shape. Tie one end of a length of yarn (we used about 2 yards for one web) to the center of the sticks. Wrap it around the other spokes, then move outward, wrapping the sticks as shown. Tie off the yarn and add a plastic spider.
Cut the bottom 2 or 3 inches from 2 plastic bottles, with one bottom about a half inch taller than the other. Discard the tops. Cut 4 1-inch slits into the taller section. Crumple orange tissue paper and place it inside both sections. Slide the shorter section over the taller. Cut a triangle from a brown paper bag and twist it into a gnarled stem. Glue it to the top.
