Halloween Spiderweb





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.

Step 3: Start Weaving!!

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

Step 4: More Supports!

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...

Keep weaving...

Step 6: Ya!!! Your Done!!!

You are now finished make your web!! Now go make a spider!!

    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!

    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

    I have made similar ones "in" my house for years with thread... if you can find iridescent thread or pearl-ized thread, that type works the best for a more realistic look. The end of the thread can be applied to the wall with a dab of rubber cement so as to not damage the paint. once all you main structure is up let the RC dry and then continue with the inner web knotting each connection. Decorate with ring spiders (cut off ring), put some on the webs and some hanging from strings around the webs.

    Hey, thanks for the how-to! This was my 1st attempt. I bought very cheap white yarn, then after almost done, found the white rope/twine I was looking for. Hope this one holds up. Thinking of finding some glow-in-dark spray hopefully, see how that works. Thanks again!

    Very cool idea! I was looking for something to add some atmosphere to a Halloween Party. Thank you!

    I thought this was a fun Site that instructed you how to make things, NOT an English lesson Site. Your sentence should have read: "Great job on how to make a realistic looking spiderweb, bowmaster. You've done a nice job explaining your project too. Thanks" I'm sure you can find a site where good grammar is the important thing. I didn't come here to learn English & I don't think you did either. Grat jobb on yorr spydur web frend*

    If you're going to check GRAMMAR then look for the right group to do this with...and you MIGHT choose another word OTHER than "Natzi"...This is a word that is associated with something very bad, read your history books, and is shun in MOST parts of the world...a word that should be stricken from the books.

    As for the Instructable...I think it's Great! I HATE spides but would Love to do this one across my yard!

    If you're going to be a "Grammar Nazi", please spell "grammar" correctly. Thanks!

    Thank you. I may be updating it in a few days when I get another one made with some mods.
