Glitter Spiderweb with Pom Spider

Glitter Yarn Spiderweb and Pom Spider
Halloween craft activity for kids


This was a super easy little Halloween project I did with my daughter.  She saw a sparkly spiderweb decoration at the craft store and wanted it but I wasn't trying to spend money on that so I told her we would make one when we got home.  We had some dark brown yarn so I cut the yarn into long strips and dipped it in glue and let her drop and arrange the sticky strands of yarn to create her spiderweb out in the garage on some cardboard.  When it was done but still wet, she sprinkled it with glitter.  It was her idea to have the long strand hanging down for a spider so I helped her make the spider, I made a pom out of the yarn (learned how to make those from the Mondo Pom Pillow Tutorial by Living with Punks) I meant to leave some longer strands of yarn for legs when trimming but oh well, kids think it's a good spider! :P  We had 3 goggly eyes so J put those on and we left one long strand and tied it to the spiderweb.  This was  a fun halloween activity for my kids, they had fun and J keeps asking to make more spiderwebs and spiders but we are out of glue!  Oh she also decorated it with her neon glitter glue sticks.

When the glitter spiderweb was totally dry the next morning, we just carefully peeled it up off the cardboard and hung it up on a tac.
