DIY Spider Webs

By: Shannon Staker of Shannon Makes Stuff,

Forget the cheesy store-bought spider webs and make your own DIY spider webs as homemade Halloween decorations. These braided spider webs are cheap and will last you for years!

  • 2 yards of white fabric (I bought this at walmart for $1.00 a yard)
  • Scissors


Take two yards of white fabric  and cut the end in two inch strips. If you look close you can see them. Just snip them.

Cut Strips

And then rip them into strips. Take two of them and tie a knot at the end.

Tie Knot on Ends

Then put that knot inbetween your toes and you are going to twist. But you can't just twist like this or it will fall apart once you let go:

You need to take the strands and twist them individually to the right.

Twist Strands to the Right

Then you can twist them together going left. This way when you let go, they untwist into each other and don't come undone.

Twist Strands Together to the Left

Take two of the twisted pieces and tie them together like so:

Then with another knot so it make a 90 degree angle.

Tie at 90 degree angle

Then take one of your other pieces and tie it into the strand to make the circulare part of the web. Then tie it to the other 90 degree piece and cut off the extra.

Tie more strands together

Repeat with two more pieces. Then take another piece and tied it through the middles of the circular web pieces to make the 90 degree pieces into 45 degrees. I know, I have lost you. Look at the picture below to understand.

Then hang it up!
