video Cobweb Spider Gun - Simple Build
Here's a very simple solution for creating stunning cob webs and spider webs, no compressed air or plumbing parts are required for the build.

Perfect for your Halloween display or Horror movie night, also great for spooky viral videos.

Even Spiderman can't out perform this web shooting device.

I have to say, after wrestling with my compressed-air shooter for several years, that YOU ARE A GENIUS! I have 2 or 3 of those blowers laying around (mattresses are long gone), and you can find them all the time at thrift stores/Goodwill for $1 or so. I am trying this immediately. Very, very nicely done sir!

Simple, clear and useful. I've always seen the hot glue as "spider web"! Now I know I was right!

The two-layered glam web at the end is great.

What a great idea! I can think of a dozen non-halloween uses for this technique too!
rollingstock (author)  buteomont5 years ago
  Absolutely.

How about a few webs on a Gothic themed Christmas tree, there is also colored hot glue available and even glue with glitter already in the glue (but watch the price).

I can imagine someone on this site making a web wallet next, perfect for the Zombie around town.

 Thank you for your comment.

Make sure you add a Spiderman to the gun, for me that was the real fun of this project.

Due to the rapid cooling of being thrown in a air stream the actual bond which is made is light, and easy to remove if required. The greater the distance you allow the web to fly the cooler and thinner it becomes.

You could also set up a web matrix on a smooth plastic surface which has had a good spray of silicone spray or cooking spray as a easy release. I found the web lifts fairly easily from material.

I know there are all sorts of methods out there of a similar device, seems all used compressed air as the web generator, I believe this is the most simple to implement. I love simple stuff.
