“Samhein”, as the Celts once called it, or Halloween, as we know it today – the Feast of Horror is celebrated worldwide and awaited with great impatience by young and old. Originally the 31st October was always for the summer end and the beginning of the winter kingdom, because the aborigines of Nordeuropas knew only two seasons. Today we celebrate Halloween in the midst of golden autumn. Exactly when the foliage dyes splendidly in red and gold and the air becomes fresher and wetter. It is also undoubtedly one of the biggest highlights of this season not only when it comes to celebrations, but also to decorating.
Halloween time is craft time
Today we are doing spinning webs ourselves and how to create a creepy Halloween atmosphere quickly with little time and money. The distinctive crawfish, which we all know and either hate or love, clearly belong to a successful one Halloween decoration to. Especially their networks enchant every single ambience in a flash and breathe it spookily. It is therefore not so surprising that many of us would like to make Halloween spiderwebs themselves in all their variants.
A spun of yarn is easy and quick to craft
Spider nets can be made of many different materials. Cotton, old fabric, plastic, paper or yarn – you can find the most suitable material for you, depending on your preference and availability. We have chosen yarns and lines here and would like to offer you three simple DIY tutorials for spinning webs, which you can follow step by step in text and image.
Spinningwebs themselves make step by step
Basically, you need very few materials and tools for the three DIY projects that you have already at home. Stay with us and look at everything in peace. Maybe you can already use your walls or the garden with effective spider webs on the coming Halloween party adorn. The editorial office wishes you a lot of fun!
DIY spider web of white yarn
For this you only need yarn in white or, if desired, in a different color, scissors and tesafilm. Ah, and best take a larger table as a work surface, as seen below.
The required materials and tools
First, lay the desired length of yarn across the table
Fix the two ends with tesafilm
Then place a second thread crosswise at the first
Then cut a much longer thread from the yarn and press it to a ball
Then, node one end to any axis and then start working on the spider’s web
Always make a knot at each point where the threads cross each other
Slowly successively your spiderwebs are Halloween
Add a few axes one after the other, as shown here
Now all that remains is to put the spider on it and… voilà!
This spider web is very similar to the first. The difference here is rather the color of the yarn as well as the working surface during weaving. This variant, a spinning web itself, is practically exactly like the method that spiders use in nature. The whimsical creatures fix the first thread at one point and then weave one by one to the opposite end of the spider web. Then they return to the center of the spider web, and again to the next end.
Original Halloween wall decoration with bats and spiderwebs
The spiders look pretty realistic
Important here is the node technology
In this way, the spunweave of yarn looks very authentic
The dark violet color forms the perfect contrast to the white wall
If you need a large spider web for the garden, this Bastelidee is the perfect for you. Here is a large artificial spider for the ultimate Gruseleffekt. You can also wrap small dolls or toys in white fabric and put them on the net – for an even more eerie effect.
With such a creepy spider web in the garden Halloween can come
These materials and tools you need for your DIY project
As a basic point for a smaller spider web would be such a little tree simply optimal
First make a small piece of cord into a loop and tie it to the tree
Then pull the cord through the loop and attach each end with a pin into the ground
Thus, the first triangle of the spider is finished
You can still make one, two or more triangles in this way
Connect successively the longer cord pieces transversely with smaller ones, as can be seen below
So it might soon be in your garden
