We are hosting a little Halloween party this year, so I’ve been searching for some fun decorations. We’ll have a bunch of young kids attending, so I didn’t want anything too spooky. So, no zombies, severed heads, or startling animatronics! I settled on some silly ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, and these fun DIY spiderwebs. Now, I am all about the classic fake spiderwebs for outside, but inside, I wanted something a bit less messy. I settled on these DIY spiderwebs made of regular garbage bags. You can make them as big or small as you want, and the supply list is blessedly short. I made mine in about 15 minutes. Here’s How I did it:
DIY Spiderwebs Tutorial
- Gather Your Materials. All you need are a trash bag, scissors, a permanent marker, and some tape.
- Trim the sides and bottom of your trash bag, but leave the two rectangles together.
- Fold and trim to make a square.
- Fold again…
- And again…
- Finally, fold to make a cone shape, just like you do when making a paper snowflake.
- Use bits of tape to secure the open edge. This keeps things from slipping around too much.
- Draw your pattern with a marker. It’s just curved lines across, and a long line down the open edge.
- Cut along your lines.
- Remove the tape and open to see your spooky spiderweb!
- Separate your layers, and you’ve got TWO webs!
- Hang anywhere! They’re so lightweight that they stay up with just the smallest pieces of tape.
