Craft Supplies

The craft supplies for this Halloween costume crafts project: craft or jewelry wire, jewelry pliers, white or grey yarn, a foam ball with a bit of black paint, a large black bead and 2 white seed beads, and 2 long jewelry pins.


Step-by-Step Tutorial Instructions

  1. Measure the desired diameter of your web and add halloween spider costume1/2 and inch for the curls on either side.
  2. Cut this desired length 3 times, and curl all the ends a bit, for prettiness and safety.
  3. Starting at the center, work either with the yarn or with a lighter, highly ply-able wire around each spoke of the web, making a loop around each spoke, and keeping the distance between the spokes even. Go around in spiral manner till your web is complete. Tip: check the web halfway to see how it would look on. Make adjustments as needed.
