A few years ago, i made a lot of stuff from this web, in that time i had a lot of free time
usually i don't create new stuff, maybe, because of my lack of imagination, but some day making a few frames to put some pictures i saw a big web spider next to my house, and !bingo!!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- A frame
You could make it, buy it or recicle an old frame
I used a big stapler, also i could use a few small nails.
- White thread
- Patience (a few)
It took me 90 minutes to finish this project
Step 2: Use the Stapler and Select Your Focal Point
So, use the stapler to put a few staples in the reverse of the frame, between 5 and 10 centimeters of separation.
Then select your "focal point", that is where the spider web is more dense.
The key here is "stretch a lot" the thread.
For every staples or nail should "born" a thread to the "focal point".
I used a very long thread, started in one staples to the "focal point" and to the next straple.
Step 3: Start the Web Desing
well, i recommend to start from the "focal point",
make a knot very near to the center and start wrapping among those radial threads
This is an iterative process
Step 4: That Would Be All
I gave one of those spider frame to mi girlfriend and she used it to put her earrings,
also, with the same technique i made that nice frame with colored buttons
as you could read, i still can't handle english as i would like.
