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
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.
