How To Make A Giant Spider Web
Youll want to first tie strings for the foundation of your spiderweb. Then you can create the individual webbing by weaving in and out of these foundation strings.
Heres how you do it.
Thats it! I made up a little diagram for how I did this.
The beauty of this DIY porch spider web is that it shouldnt look perfect. It looks a little more spooky and realistic when the rows are slightly off.
The finishing touch will be your giant spooky spider! These spiders have bendy legs so you can easily hang them on your spiderweb. Add one or two or more depending on how big your spider web is!
Homemade Vs Store Bought Frosting
In this instance though store bought is way more convenient and you aren’t really eating a bunch of the frosting, just using it to pipe a few lines onto each brownie square.
Plus the upside to buying a small container of frosting is that it’s only a cup or so of frosting which is more than you need for these brownies. Where as if you make homemade buttercream you will have lots left over .
I love how fast these Halloween brownies come together!

Learn To Draw A Spider Web Easy Step By Step
Lets start off with drawing out some basic guides to use for our spider web drawing.
Begin by making a small dot for the central point of your spider web. This is where the lines will meet, but it doesnt have to be exactly in the center.
Next, draw some lines going from that dot to the edge of the paper. You can start by adding lines going to each of the four corners.
Then add some lines between each of those four lines.
You can make as many, or as few, lines as youd like.
Now you want to start drawing some curved lines that go between the longer lines. I like to work my way around in a circle. But you could do a section at a time as well.
Keep adding these curved lines for your webbing between all of your guidelines.
Continue to add those curved lines. You can make the spacing between bigger as you move toward the outside edge of your paper.

I like using but other mediums would work just as well. There are many different ways to add color.
You can fill in the entire background, like I did here. Or you can try just adding in some accent colors to your spider web drawing. A white Gelly Roll pen was used to add the white highlights.

Learn How To Draw A Spider Web With Some Easy Step By Step Directions Then Try Them Out With Lots Of Different Markers
Most folks would probably agree that spider webs are pretty simple to draw, but have you ever wondered why some look so much more real than others?
Well, its obvious that they follow a pattern, but I think the difference is when someone tries to draw them too well. As in, all perfectly straight lines with perfectly even spaces in between them. They just tend to look TOO geometric, and have none of the real life quality to them.
The two best tips to follow to avoid this? Draw the rings with an oh so slight drape, and add just a bit more space between the rings as they go away from the center. Thats it.
Once you have that down, I recommend experimenting with all the cool markers around these days that work well on black paper. Your students just might not be able to stop drawing lots of spider webs!
Pipe Cleaner And Pom Pom Spider
Next, you can make a super simple little spider to go along with your web! All you need are 2 pom poms and 1 pipe cleaner.
Cut the pipe cleaner into 4 equal pieces. If youre using a 12 pipe cleaner, each piece will be 3 long.
Line up the 4 pipe cleaner pieces beside each other as shown below.
Then take the longest pipe cleaner piece and wrap it tightly around the middle and twist it to hold them together.
Spread out the pipe cleaners so that you have 4 legs on each side.
Then pinch the ends down to make creepy spider legs. Have I mentioned I hate spiders? Even this photo creeps me out. haha
Use a hot glue gun to attach the small pom pom to the medium pom pom, and then the pom poms to the legs.
These paper spiderwebs look amazing hanging in the window! The parchment paper is slightly translucent, so it looks very spiderweb-y.
Theyre super simple, yet awesome Halloween decorations!
You could even hang your spider from a thread below the paper spiderweb!
I love how simple this craft is, yet its surprisingly realistic looking! Theyd look awesome hanging in the front window on Halloween!
These paper spiderwebs are so easy to make and they look AWESOME! The pipe cleaner spider is so simple, but it really makes this Halloween decoration look amazing! This is such a fun Halloween craft to make with the kids!

How To Make A Giant Spider Web For Halloween
One of my fondest memories growing up is watching my Dad make the giant spiderweb for Halloween every year on our front porch.
This spiderweb was HUGE and I was always in such awe of it.
Now that we have a front porch of our own, I finally get to create that giant spiderweb for my kids!
This Halloween DIY is so simple and makes a big impact on your porch.
If youre looking for an easy, inexpensive way to add some Halloween decor to your home this is a winner!
So lets get to the tutorial.
Paper Spider Web Supplies
Just like the name suggests, these spider webs are made out of paper. Youll need just a few more supplies though.
- parchment paper you can use other paper but I suggest parchment paper
The reason I suggest using parchment paper is that it folds easily and its not as thick as some other papers. You could also use tissue paper since its thin but you have to be really careful since it can tear really easily.
I like parchment paper because while its thin, its also pretty sturdy. You could also use wax paper if you dont have any parchment paper on hand.
Just like with the spider webs I shared yesterday, youll need a pair of very sharp scissors. If your scissors are dull, not only will you have a very hard time cutting through the paper, youre more likely to accidentally cut all the way through and have to start all over. Not that I know this from experience or anything.

Just like a paper snowflake, all you need is a square of paper and some scissors. Then its as simple as cutting out a spiderweb pattern and unfolding your creation. Im always so impressed with how beautiful they look once you open them up!
I hate spiders. I really do. Even just looking at the photos of my pipe cleaner spider down below makes me a little squeamish. But oddly enough, I dont seem to have an issue with spiderwebs. Theyre so beautiful and such a natural marvel!
I went to the dollar store to look for small plastic spiders, but I couldnt find any. Which is probably just as well, because they would have freaked me out anyway. Besides the pipe cleaner spiders that Im going to show you how to make are so easy that Im actually pretty excited to include them in this post. I made mine purple because black was just too creepy.
