DIY.....Spider party favor bag

I love putting together party's and this year "J" is old enough to enjoy a Halloween party so we are having one. I wanted to make something fun for the kids to take their treats home in so the idea came to me when we were making fun Halloween plates.
This is super easy and very inexpensive to make.
"J" painted the plates, and stapled the pipe cleaners to the plate for me. This is a great fine motor craft for kids.
 Supplies are listed in the picture below.
Cut the plate in half and then staple the outside.

Paint the outside of the plate black, then cut the 2 pipe cleaners into 4 pieces for each side of the plate, after that staple the legs on and the string, place your eyes on and you have a cute party favor bag.
The picture below shows the favor bag full of goodies. I got some orange grass from Target dollar section stuffed with that. Then added stickers, pencils and a lollipop. You can fill with whatever you would like.

  2. It is just a perfect idea to celebrate your child’s birthday. I have been finding for good local event venues for my son’s 7th birthday party. He has demanded to have spider themed birthday party. Thanks for the idea.
