Easy Spiderweb Making

We don't have a lot of store-bought Halloween decorations for our house because we prefer to make them. Here's an easy, fun, and occasionally messy way to make spiderwebs for decoration!
To make them you'll need:
  • White yarn (or black if you want to make your spiderweb shadowy)
  • Simple flour and water paste (mix four and water together to make a paste)
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Wax paper
  • Scissors
Start by drawing a spiderweb on your paper.  We made ours a corner spiderweb but you can make a full round one.  Yes, I realize that I drew my lines wrong above.  We figured that our half-way through making our web!  If your children are a little older, you probably do not need to draw a spiderweb first.

Cover your paper with wax paper to prevent sticking when you glue it together.

Dip pieces of yarn into your paste mixture and put them on the wax paper following the lines you drew.  Make sure to press together the places where your yarn meets.

Wait till your spider web dries completely before gently pealing it off of the wax paper.  You can use a hair dryer to speed up this process a little.

Cut off any excess string and hang it where you want!

Where would you hang your spider web?
