Halloween Decoration: Sparkly Spiderweb & Spider~ Buggy and Buddy

I have to admit Halloween is the one holiday we have the least amount of decorations for. Luckily I have two kids that are very willing to help build up our stash of Halloween decor with Halloween crafts for kids (like our super cute hanging bat craft)!

This glittery spider web and spider decoration was super easy to make. I especially love how it looks when the sun is hitting it just right~ lots of sparkle! (This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.)

Materials for Spider Web Craft for Kids


Directions for Spider Web Craft for Kids

1. Tear off a piece of wax paper and place it on a flat surface. (Make sure you are using wax paper and not parchment paper or other baking paper. The wax on the paper is what makes the craft able to peel off once it is dry.)


2. Draw your spider web with the liquid glue. (Make sure the lines are fairly thick. Lines that are too thin could end up tearing.)

3. Cover the entire spider web with black glitter.

4. Gently shake off the excess glitter. (We shake it off onto a paper plate and then pour it back into the glitter holder to be reused.)

5. Let it dry completely. Ours took about 24 hours to dry.

6. Gently peel the spider web off the wax paper.

7. Now it’s time to make your spider. We took one black pompom and wrapped some short black pipe cleaners around it to make 8 legs. Then we glued on two eyes.

  1. Very cute! We will definitely be making these. I also like that the materials are low cost and a lot of them I already have. I hope you can find black glitter at Walmart :)

  2. Oh I love this idea! So cute!

  3. I have pinned this to my spider board – great idea – and I love the sparkle.

  4. Too cute! Adding to my Halloween Craft list, thanks for the idea.

  5. What??? These are fantastic! I (glitterphobe that I am) could totally handle these if we hung them outside!

  6. This is an adorable craft! I am pinning it for the next year. Thanks for sharing with Afterschool!

  7. These are so great! I’m definitely pinning it, and I LOVE your nature table!!

  8. I must do this with my son! Thanks

  9. What a simple and great idea! How did you hang up the finished masterpiece?

    • Thanks so much! We hung it up with just a few pieces of poster putty. That’s always our favorite adhesive for hanging since it just pulls right off and doesn’t do anything to the walls.

  10. I have a glitter phobia, but this is really cute! Thanks for sharing at After School. :)

  11. Very good idea !! Just your spider seems to have only 6 legs …

  12. This is so cute and so simple. Absolutely love it.

  13. These are so cute you just might have me getting out the glitter indoors!
    Thanks for linking up with Mom’s Library, I’ll be featuring you this week at Crystal’s Tiny Treasures ūüėČ

  14. Oh I love how this came out. We did glue window clings but never thought of using the glue for a decoration! It looks store bought! Great job! Thanks so much for sharing at We Made That Wednesday!
