WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

-Toilet Paper Rolls

– Black Acrylic Paint

-Paint Brush

– Orange and Black Curling Ribbon

-Scissors

HOW TO DO IT:

1. Paint your toilet paper rolls black and allow to dry.

2. Fill your rolls with organic candies or small toys

3. Fold in edges of your rolls to hold the “treats”

4. Cut a black ribbon long enough to go all the way around  the LONG side of the tube leaving enough ribbon to tie. (This will hold the edges of your tube closed.)

5. Cut shorter orange and black ribbons and tie around the middle of your tube.

6. Tie ribbons and then cut and curl. This will make an adorable decoration on top of your tube!

(***SOMETHING EXTRA: If you have some extra black construction paper around the house, cut out wings and glue them to your tube. Add some eyes and make a bat***)

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

-Plastic bottle caps

-Acrylic Paint (variety of colors for spider bodies)

-Glue  (white glue or hot glue)

HOW TO DO IT:
