Halloween craft : Spider's Web

Our local zoo always puts on a Halloween-themed event so we went along for a visit during half term. They offered a free crafts activity to make a spider's web and it's something you could easily make at home with a few basic supplies so I thought I'd share it with you.

You'll need a polystyrene ball, some wooden skewers, some black pipe-cleaners and some string, as well as a spider cutout. Push the skewers into the ball at regular intervals.

Use a simple knot to fasten one end of the string near the centre on one of the spokes, about 1cm away from the ball. Thread the string around the sticks to make a web design, simply looping it around each spoke as you pass, then tying it off with another knot when you've finished.

Use your pipie-cleaners to create spider legs. We had a spider cutout but you could just use a black circle of card and add googly eyes.

Wrap the ends of the pipe-cleaner legs around the string in various places to attach the spider to the web.

It's very simple but very effective - perfect for some last minute Halloween crafts.
