Stretch Out Spider Webs

Out of the package, fake spider webs look like a large cotton ball. The more you stretch it, the more realistic it will look. One package can go a long way and decorate many different areas in your house. Use scissors to cut the webbing into smaller sections.

Use Hooks to Catch the Web

To secure the webs, it’s easiest to catch them on a hook, nail, or sharp corner. You can also stretch it around objects.

Use Tack Putty for Difficult Areas

If you have a difficult area where there is nothing to catch the webs on, use some removable tack putty. Stretch the webs out first and then tack it to a small ball of putty. This works well on the side of a door frame or on the back of furniture.
