Framed Spider Web

Create crafts that are chic, original and even scary!

Instructions:

1. Set your hot glue gun to low temperature, if possible, and glue the plastic eyes to the frame. (It is preferable to use a wooden frame since a resin frame could melt when it comes into contact with the hot glue.)

2. Measure out a double length of yarn and attach one end to the back of the frame with a spot of hot glue. Reinforce the yarn by coating it with glue, and let dry.

3. Extend the yarn across the frame and glue the other end. Repeat by placing 5 or 6 lengths diagonally across the frame, being sure to have only one point of intersection. Wrap each length around the intersecting strands to create a more defined and solid central point.

4. Take a very long strand of yarn and fold it in half. Make a lark’s head knot using this strand of yarn and one of the strands attached to the frame, as close as possible to the moulding. (Lark’s head knot: the strand folded in half forms a loop at the fold. Place this loop under the strand attached to the frame. Pass the other end over the attached strand, and through the loop. Pull to create a knot.)

5. Pull the strand toward the right and wrap it around the next strand crossing the frame. Still toward the right, wrap the next strands one at a time, gradually approaching the centre. (It is also possible to make a knot to reinforce the intersection.)

6. Thread a few spider-shaped buttons through the long strand of yarn and place them wherever you like on the web. 

7. Wrap a last bit of yarn around the centre of the web and make a final knot. Cut the excess yarn.

8. Hang the frame on the wall as a decoration and pin small candy bags to it to give it a practical purpose.
