  • 1 xx oz. bottle of liquid glue (any type is fine)
  • ⅓ cup of water
  • 1 balloon
  • A skein of worsted weight or chunky yarn
  • A spoon
  • A large bowl
  • A hot glue gun or super glue (to glue on fake spiders if wanted)
  • A pair of scissors
  • 3 fake spiders or more (not necessary, but adds to the spooky effect)

Your spider web is now complete, but you can add one more thing to make it look cooler: you can hot glue fake spiders onto the web to make it look even creepier. 

This spooky spider web decoration is pretty easy to make and will take barely any time out of your day, proving that Halloween decorations don’t have to be complicated to be effective.
