This is an easy Halloween craft you can make on your own or with your kids – DIY Glitter Spider Webs. I know spider webs aren’t typically cute, sparkly or pretty, but that is the look I wanted. Remember, we love fun and cute Halloween decorations in our house. These glittery spider webs look fantastic hanging in our foyer.
Even the spiders are cute. I originally bought plastic spiders to place on the webs but my kids thought they were a bit spooky. Luckily, I found these cute spiders at Michaels. They are felt sticker spiders that also have rhinestones on them. Bonus – extra sparkle.
The materials I used to make these Glitter Spider Webs were Elmer’s glue, purple glitter, parchment paper or wax paper, purple ribbon and felt spider stickers. I used parchment paper because that’s what I had at the time. You could use wax paper.
I first created my spider web using glue. See photo below for a visual step-by-step.
I sprinkled glitter – a generous amount – on the glue web. Notice in the left part of the photo below, how the spider web is fully covered. I mean you can’t even see the white glue. I wanted these spider webs to be very glittery. I dumped the extra glitter onto a paper towel.
TIP: I folded the paper towel and then put the extra glitter back into the glitter container. I didn’t want to waste any glitter.
I let the spider web dry for at least 24 hours. This step is important. The glue needs to be completely dry.
I slowly and carefully removed the spider web off of the parchment paper.
I attached the cute spider onto the web. The back of the spiders had an adhesive dot already attached. This made it easy to attach to the glitter spider web.
I used ribbon to hang the spider webs.
What do you think? These Glitter Spider Webs look great as Halloween decorations.
