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.


Step 1

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.
