Things You'll Need

  • 2-foot-by-3-foot doormat

  • Glow-in-the-dark dimensional paint or glow-in-the-dark hot melt glue

  • Clear or iridescent glitter

  • Black felt

  • Purple glitter paint

  • Scissors

Draw the Spiderweb

Draw a line across the horizontal center of the mat with chalk or a light-colored crayon. Draw a second line down the vertical center. Divide each section into thirds and make a mark. Connect each mark with a curved line, and then a line from the mark to the center. Make several rows of these curved lines.

Outline the Spiderweb Drawing

Follow the drawn lines with your choice of glow-in-the-dark dimensional paint or glow-in-the-dark hot melt glue. Don't worry if the lines are not completely straight, as slightly wiggly lines will look more authentic.

Add Some Glitter

Place some paper under the project before you start to make the cleanup process easier. Sprinkle glitter over the lines while they are still damp. Let it dry overnight.

Decorate the Spider

Use purple glitter to line the edge of the spider cutout. You can also further decorate the spider to add some Halloween flare or match your autumnal home decor. Attach the spider to the mat with hot melt glue after the mat has dried completely.
