My daughter is obsessed with Halloween spiders.  She sneaks those small plastic ones in her pants pocket and takes them to pre-school with her.  Ummm, she did not learn this from me.  I am not a lover of spiders.  I have grown more brave since I have grown a garden.  Those naughty little daddy long legs like to sneak out while I am trying to weed, hence the lack of weeding in my garden.  But who am I if not a wonderful mother who wants to make life size spider webs for my sweet girl? This is a  quick project you can make in a short amount of time.  The best part about it, you can reuse an old picture frame or pick up one at a thrift store.  Would you believe me if I said I always have some stashed in my closet.  I NEVER get rid of a frame.  You never know when you’ll need it!


  • Picture frame
  • Staple gun
  • Yarn
  • Paint

So, out I went to sit on my porch and create as few spider webs to add to my decor.  I will tell you right now, if you don’t have an electric staple gun, GO GET ONE NOW.  They are lovely, and really quite reasonable priced.  I purchased mine from Amazon, and you can find one here.

The first thing I did was paint my frame.  The bright red just didn’t go with my style.

Don’t be surprised, I painted it white

I stapled the yarn onto the back of the frame.  Sometimes I need to secure the yarn by tapping on the staple with a hammer.

I pulled the yarn taut and stapled the other side and cut it off.

Add a few more lines of yarn, all intersecting each other.

I then start at the center.  I cut a piece of yarn and began tying it tightly to each strand, creating a crooked looking hexagram.  6 sides right?

I then repeat the process as many times as needed.

When you are done adding web layers, you are done.  I think they are a great addition to my front porch!

  1. This is too cute! I was actually just needing to add a little something to a Halloween themed gallery wall and this is just what I am missing. Thank you for the idea, I will for sure link back to you for the wonderful inspiration.

  2. This is definitely a spooky project. Don’t like spiders – it would definitely give me the willy’s. But still cute. Cathy

  3. girl, you are a handful of talent….This is amazing you literally used everyday items that most Home decor/craft/DIY bloggers already have in their home and made it into something that looks REALLY good!

  4. Sara,

    These are so cute! What a great idea! I was looking for some easy outdoor Halloween decorations and these are perfect! Thank you for sharing!

  5. What a fun idea! I got pro at using the staple gun on our front porch, since it took me forever to get our spider webs up. I may have to give it some more practice and make a few of these too.
