Easy Halloween Window Webs
Lengths of black ribbon and yarn and a little strategic weaving (if a spider can do it, surely you can, too!) are all it takes to add shadowy webs to your front windows. Dangle a couple crawling critters from the roofline to complete the creepy picture.
What You Need
- Tape measure
- Cardboard large enough to fit dimensions of web
- Black blanket binding (2 packages)
- Straight pins
- Crafts glue
- 5 yards of 1-inch-wide satin ribbon
- Nubby black yarn
- Small tacks or nails
How to Make It
- For a rigid surface to lay out the web, cut out a rectangle of cardboard 4 inches larger all around than the window measurement.
- Cut a piece of blanket binding for each side of the window.
- Arrange the blanket binding pieces on the cardboard, using straight pins to hold the binding in place on the cardboard frame.
- Glue the binding edges together at the corners.
- For the spokes of the web, cut lengths of ribbon to crisscross across the frame. Insert ribbon ends into the binding openings, apply glue, and pin in place until dry.
- To create the web design, weave yarn between the ribbon spokes, gluing and pinning it to the ribbons at intersections. Let dry.
- Tack into place around the window.
