Oh yeah, She's BAD!!! But in such a super cute way, right? This was the easiest and most fun craft yet. Well, for me anyway. Look at that cute little thing - just makes me smile. Continuing the Halloween Kids Craft theme I've had going on, I give you the Spider Hat.
You could probably make this with stuff you already have at home. This is about a 30 minute craft that kids could totally do all on their own unless they needed scissor assistance.
Black Construction Paper
Orange Construction Paper
I recommend using a glue stick as it sticks the best in the shortest amount of time. You could use Elmer's regular glue but that tends to take a little more time to set up and these puppies need to be worn right away...you'll see!
1. You will need to cut your black construction paper into strips. One strip that is 2" wide by 22" long which will be the main head band. You could also make this happen with 2 strips that are 2" wide by 11" long - just overlap and glue the ends together. That's how I did the one you see. You will also need 8 strips that are 1-1/2" wide by 9" long, these will be the legs.
2. For the eyes you are going to cut 2 large black circles, 2 medium orange circles and 2 small black circles out of your construction paper. I just used things we had around the house to trace, just eyeball it, you've got stuff, you know you do. ;)

5. Now fold back about 1/2'' of the end of one side of the folded strips. I hope the picture below explains this better. :/
Also, take the long strip, main head band, and wrap it around the head it's going on and mark or hold the spot where the strip overlaps itself. Glue that in place so that long strip is now a circle and then glue your eyes onto it. It looks best to glue the eyes right next to each other, basically so that the small black circles are close to touching.
6. Glue the side of the strip that you didn't fold to the inside of the main head band piece. Arrange them with 4 on 1 side and 4 on the other.
It should look something like this when you are finished.
