Handprint Spider Art

Around here the second the calendar flips to October, the kids have us hauling out the Halloween decorations. It's a big deal in our family, and has been since we were kids!  So it's no wonder that we've been keeping our eye out for fun Halloween-themed crafts since before it was even summer. One such idea we saw on Pinterest was this handprint spider on a tile. Super-cute! Charlie was home sick from preschool yesterday and definitely needed an activity to keep him busy. I had a spare small canvas so we decided to try making some spider art of our own!


What You Need:
  • Small canvas (or paper or tile)
  • Paint (one color for the background, one for spider)
  • Paint brush
  • Googly eyes (optional)
  • A little goblin in need of entertaining!

 First, paint your canvas. Charlie thought silver would be good.

Once that dries it's onto the fun (read: messy) part! Paint your child's hand - or just let them stick it in a blob of black paint!

Then press it onto your canvas!

When it's dry, add a spider web.

And around here, fine art is never complete without googly eyes.

 And show off your spooky masterpiece!

Pin It!
