When we think about
By this point, we’ve tried just about every cobweb themed craft in existence, but that’s never stopped us from scouring the Internet looking for more ideas. Just in case you and your kids like
1. Paper plate and yarn cobweb
We love making paper plate crafts because there are so many different kinds of things you can create and our kids always get a kick out of transforming something regular and everyday into something funky instead. We particularly love this idea yarn woven spider web idea from
2. White glue and loose glitter cobwebs
Have your kids always had a huge love for sparkly things and enjoyed working with glitter at every opportunity? Our little ones always manage to make a huge mess whenever we let them use loose glitter, but they’re always so happy during the crafting process that we don’t really mind if our kitchen floor is sparkly for weeks after, no matter how well we try to clean it. We have a feeling, then, that your kids will love this sparkling cobweb idea from
3. Spider Man style shooting cobwebs
Okay, we know that this crafting idea isn’t technically just a Halloween craft, but October is all about dressing up and transforming yourself into something you find cool, right? Then why not make Spider Man style cobweb shooters anyways? We actually made these with our kids last week and they have yet to go a day without strapping them on and pretending to shoot each other with imaginary globs of webbing.
4. Technicolour spider web drawings
Perhaps your kids’ favourite kinds of DIY and crafting projects are the ones where they get to paint because they love bright colours so much and will take any opportunity to use cheerful shades, even though Halloween is typically spooky and dark? Then perhaps they’d love to try their hand at these beautiful cobweb murals by
5. Hama bead spider webs
If you’ve never tried hama beads or perler beads with your kids, then we’re sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out! All that means, however, is that now you’ve got the opportunity to try out something completely fun and new! We remember back in the early 1990s when hama bead crafts were the height of the DIY trend for kids and we adored making all kinds of shapes with all kinds of themes. Halloween was no exception! That’s why we loved this simple but super fun hama bead cobwebs idea from
6. Cheddar cobwebs
When you and your kids set time aside to make things together, do you tend to end up choosing things that you can eat together rather than just decorative or crafty things? Well, we can’t say we blame you! Cobwebs, however, don’t immediately seem like the kind of things you can incorporate into your food… or can you?
7. Yarn spider web bulletin board
Are you still enamoured with the idea of spider webs made of yarn but you don’t have a lot of room for clutter so you’re not keen on the idea of making new things that your kids will want to hang all over your home and in your windows? Then maybe you’d rather transform something you already own and use to make it look spooky temporarily instead! We love the way
8. Trash bag spider webs
Has time gotten away from you and now you’re intent on throwing together some last minute Halloween décor so that your house doesn’t look completely unseasonal, but you still want the things you make to be affordable and kid-friendly? Then use what’s already in your home and easily available! We’ve made tons of these funny little garbage bag cobwebs by
9. Spider web sugar cookies
Are you still thinking about how cute the idea of making cobweb themed food is but you think your kids would enjoy something sweet rather than something savoury? Then maybe icing design is the way to go! Of course, if you’re going to make patterns in delicious glaze, the best thing to put that glaze on in a batch of
10. Paper bag spider web luminaries
We’ve always been a little bit obsessed with luminaries. Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy making candles and candle holders of all different kinds, but there’s something about the glow of luminaries specifically that just warms us, especially in the fall. Around Halloween, however, we specifically like that they look a little bit spookier than most other tea light holders you’ll find! On top of that, our kids love making them because they can draw and decorate the luminaries however they please, since making luminaries from paper bags is such a customizable idea. Check out how
11. Chocolate spider webs
Were you intrigued by the icing spider webs you saw above but you’re just not sure you want that much sweetness in one place? Maybe your kids’ favourite treat is something else and you’d rather add a bit of cobwebbed detail to that rather than making a whole batch of cookies? Then check out how
12. DIY glow in the dark spider web
Have you ever tried making crafts out of hot glue? Well, if not, then we’re about to show you a whole new world of crafting possibility that is surprisingly fun and versatile, even for kids!
13. Pipe cleaner spider webs with hanging spiders
We’ve already talked about ways to make a cool woven spider web out of pipe cleaners and yarn, but in the last tutorial we showed you a version that just involved sticking a crafted or store bought spider to the yarn when you’re finished. This time,
14. Cellulose and thread cobwebs
This craft involves using a sewing machine, so it’s best to do with kids who are a little bit older, but that doesn’t mean some little kids with lots of patience can’t get involved too!
15. Branch and cobwebs mobile
Have your kids been begging you to help them make things with those cotton feeling store bought cobwebs that you’ve probably seen on porches across your neighbourhood? Well, believe it or not, there are lots of different things you can do with those packages that are more interesting than just stringing them along your front door frame.
