Spider Web Window Clings for What to Read Wednesday

Spiderweb Window Clings and Spider Picture Books

Spiders.  You know I love ’em.  They are such fascinating creatures.  They spin webs.  They kite.  They have those eight amazing legs.

Can you imagine being able to build your house And get groceries without needing any tools or supplies?  Sounds like a life of ease to me.  I’ve loved spiders all my life.  I’m intrigued by how scary-looking they can be.  Their colors.  Their ways of camouflaging.  Their ability to survive.

So we should totally honor them with a very cool craft.

I know Halloween is almost here, but we did this cute craft last week and the boys loved it and there’s still time to hang these babies in your window and be a little more spooky for the holiday.  So let’s make some.

Spiderweb Window Clings

Easy Spiderweb Window Cling Craft

What you need:

  • Wax Paper
  • A circular object to trace (we used canning lids, but you could easily go as big as a saucer or plate)
  • School glue

I mean, that’s all.

What you do:

Spiderweb Window Clings-Trace circle

  • Trace your circles onto wax paper

Spiderweb Window Clings-web lines

  • With your glue, make a line cutting the circle in half

Spiderweb Window Clings-web lines 2

  • Make a line cutting the circle in half the other way

Spiderweb Window Clings-web lines 3

  • Make an X through the center of your quartered circle

  • Connect each straight line with small curved lines from top to bottom
  • I mean, you’re done.  Allow the glue to dry overnight
  • Next day, carefully peel the spiderwebs from the wax paper
  • Dampen a rag and lightly dab the back of the spiderweb to wet it
  • Stick it to the window
