Today’s papercraft tutorial isn’t for the faint of heart. Paper spider webs add super spooky vibes to your home or classroom! DIY cobwebs look great as wall ornament, front door or window decoration, party décor and photo backdrop.
DIY paper spider webs
A DIY paper spider web is super easy and fun to make. All you need for this Halloween craft is paper, pencils, and craft scissors. I used black, silver and white paper for my spider nets, but other colors such as red, purple, or green, would look spooky, too.
This is a great DIY project to make with kids and an easy teacher Halloween craft for the classroom. You can make this DIY freehand, but I created a nifty printable template to make crafting a paper spider web even easier. Simply download the printable instructions and template at the end of the post!
Tips for hanging the paper spider webs
Apply a small piece of double-sided tape, glue dots, or adhesive sticks to the centre of a paper spider web and stick to a wall or surface. You may have to add a little more tape to support the top half of the spider web. I applied the spider webs in clusters and combined them with a printable garland from our Itsy Bitsy Spider Halloween bundle, cobwebs and small plastic spiders. You could also use a single paper spider web as a wall ornament and place it inside a black picture frame or to decorate your windows and front door.
