Introduction: Cheesecloth Spider Web

About: I am a conceptual artist, and my DIY projects are mostly inspired by pop culture (movies, music, sports, TV). I mostly specialize in painting, graphic design, drawing, digital photography, performance art, and…

Any DIY project that is inexpensive and anyone can do is perfect, especially for Halloween! This cheesecloth cobweb complete with colorful plastic spiders is one of them!

Step 1: Materials

To make this, you will need:

  • white cheesecloth
  • black dye
  • plastic spiders
  • hot glue gun

Step 2: Prepare Water

First, fill a bowl or container with water and throw in some black dye. You can add as much as you need to, depending on how dark you want your cheesecloth to be.

Step 3: Dye Cheesecloth

Next, grab the cheesecloth and dip it into the black water. You can even get a perfect black if you were to leave the cloth in for about 10 extra minutes. Once you're ready, take it out and let dry.

Step 4: Distress

Then, take the cheesecloth and rip through a few parts to make it look like a distressed cobweb.

Step 5: Add Spiders

Finally, use a few dots of hot glue to attach some fake plastic spiders all over the cheesecloth. Let dry before hanging!

Step 6: Hang and Enjoy

Now, you can hang your newly made spider web ensemble anywhere you want to get your spook on!
