Halloween Spider Applique


Updated October 10, 2012
(1 Votes)


Easy applique crafts can transform any outfit. Create your own Halloween Spider Applique from Tiffany Windsor that you can reposition. Use cotton fabric and Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over Glue to create your spooky design and bring the piece to life.

Halloween Spider Applique


  • Aleene’s® Tack It Over and Over™ Glue
  • Aleene’s® Stop Fraying™ Glue
  • Aleene’s® Jewel-It™ Embellishing Glue
  • Cotton fabric – black
  • Tweezers
  • Swarovki rhinestones – several sizes
  • Spider pattern of your choice
  • Colored pencil (or sewing chalk) – to draw pattern onto fabric
  • Scissors
  • Non-stick surface (for storing applique)
  • Cardboard or plastic squeegee
  • Wax paper


  1. Draw spider design onto black fabric with colored pencil.
  2. To keep the fabric from fraying when you cut it, lay fabric face down on wax paper. Squeeze a puddle of Aleene’s Stop Fray Glue on waxed paper. Use squeegee to apply glue to fabric in a smooth thin coat. Do not press too hard or over-saturate the fabric with glue. Let glue dry completely.
  3. Place fabric, pattern side up on work surface. If desired, apply a tape nozzle to tip of Aleene’s Jewel It Glue bottle. This gives you better control when applying small amounts of glue.
  4. Determine placement of rhinestones. Apply small dots of glue to fabric and use tweezers to press rhinestones into glue. After all rhinestones are glued in place, set aside to let glue dry.
  5. Cut out rhinestone spider following outside pattern lines.
  6. To create repositionable applique, place spider face down on waxed paper and apply Aleene’s Tack It Over & Over Glue to back of spider design. You should have an even coat of glue on the body and all legs.  Let dry until clear.
  7. When the glue is dry it will be clear but it will still be sticky.
  8. Test applique on a scrap piece of fabric. This will remove excess stickiness before first use.
  9. Place on your wearable. Remove when desired and store on non-stick surface.
