Why buy Halloween decorations when you can have your kids make really cool ones? This 3-D Yarn Spider Web is fun to make and will turn heads this Halloween!

How We Did It

3-D Yarn Spider Web

Gather supplies and prep area with newspapers--this one is a little messy! Blow up the balloon slightly (you don't need a large balloon for this web).

3-D Yarn Spider Web

Spray the balloon with a light even coat of oil. This will help the yarn from not sticking to the balloon later on.

3-D Yarn Spider Web

Pour glue into a large bowl. Note: You will use almost a full bottle of glue for this project. So let your kid squirt away!

3-D Yarn Spider Web

Gather about 50 feet of yarn and toss it in the bowl of glue. You want the yarn soaked in glue, so mix the yarn a lot and make sure it is all covered.

3-D Yarn Spider Web
Wrap the yarn around the balloon in various directions and multiple times. The more wraps you do, the stronger it will be.

Once the balloon is covered, hang it overnight to dry.

In the morning, pop the balloon and decorate the web with plastic spiders. Now admire the web you've weaved!

I so wanted to make this with my son but I guess I just stink. I could not get my yarn to not tangle up. So disappointed.

I'm sorry Pamela! The yarn is definitely easy to get tangled up. Maybe try wrapping the yarn around your hand first to create a a coil of it. Then soak it in the glue and wrap the balloon. Or you could try smaller pieces of yarn and wrap it is sections. I

I am very inspired to make string -web Christmas ornaments by adding a little glitter

I want to make a bunch for Halloween and string them across the doorway with Christmas lights, instead of using the porch light. I'm sure the neighborhood children will love it :)

That sounds so beautiful! I could totally see both ideas working well— glitter and christmas light additions. I sure do love this time of year!

What a cool idea! My daughter Felicity loved the part where she got to pop the balloon.
