Introduction: Halloween Spiderweb

In this Instructable we are going to learn how to make a spider web!!

Step 1: Materials!!

For this instructable all you need is some yarn and a pair scissors. I used a blueish color for the yarn but you can use what you want.

Step 2: Basic Frame

First you want to start with a basic frame of one vertical length of yarn and one horizontal.

I started to weave the thread around in a spiral tying a overhand knot each time I got to one of the supporting strands.

Me and my mom added more support strands at this part but you can add them earlier if you want to.

Step 5: Keep Weaving...

    Cool. Looks like you did it with the big trees. We only have one tree in front of our house :-(.

    it stretched from tree to tree and up high to the porch and side of the house...it was a monster.  Thanks for the compliment!

    Dang, how much string did you use!?!

    probably at least 600 feet

    Wow, that's alot of string! My web was only ~10 feet x 10 feet.

    thanks for the instructable!  here is my spooky spiderweb....  the spider caught a little guy in its web...


    Its easy and cool for making weird night ....

    Our neighbors do this every year. They then shine black lights up from the porch floor so the webs glow an eery purple at night.

    Great and neat idea, I will definitely use it this upcoming halloween, last year i used gray duct tape on my garage to creat a spider web and it acutally came up nice. but I like this idea waaaay better
