We’re continuing our Halloween crafting with craft stick spiderwebs.

Here’s what you need:

  • Craft sticks
  • White yarn
  • White glue
  • Black Paint
  • Toothpick

Glue 2 craft sticks in an x, with a dot of glue in the middle. Make 2 of those, and glue one on top of the other, like the photo above.

Cut a fairly long length of white yarn (about double an adult arms length). Begin by wrapping the yarn around the very middle of the web, criss-crossing a few times to make sure the yarn stays put (again, just like the photo above)

Begin to weave the yarn over and under the sticks, adding a dab of glue to hold it in place.

Keep wrapping around the sticks, turning as you go until you get to the end of the yarn, Glue the end of the yarn to the craft stick.

Using a very small amount, drop a dot of black paint on one of the sticks. Using a toothpick, gently place the end of the toothpick in the paint and drag outwards to create legs. Make 8 legs per spider.

These are the kind of spider webs you won’t mind having around the house!
