How to Make a Fake Spider Web


A quick and uncomplicated fake spider web can be made with hot glue. The glue cools and hardens quickly, so the web can be created in just a few minutes. These are perfect to tuck into Halloween centerpieces and hang from mirrors. The fake spider web could also serve as a Halloween surprise in a child's lunch box. Children over the age of 8 will love to make these fake spider webs for their friends.

Things You'll Need

  • Mini hot glue gun
  • Mini hot glue sticks
  • Polyethylene cutting board
  • Ruler
  • Plug in the hot glue gun. When the glue is hot and flows smoothly, press the gun's trigger to make a 4-inch-long line of glue on the cutting board.

  • Intersect the first line with another 4-inch-long glue line, making an "X."

  • Add two more intersecting lines, evenly spaced, with the glue gun.

  • Add rows of curved lines of glue between the intersecting lines, making sure all lines connect.

  • Let the glue cool for five minutes. Carefully peel the completed fake spider web off the cutting board.
