Draw the Web

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 Drawing

Follow the drawn lines with your choice of either 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 Glitter

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