When I saw the Hula Hoop Rug and Hula loop Rag Rug tutorials on pinterest, I knew it could be altered to create a giant spider web.
For the Web
Hula hoop($1 - Dollar Store find)
Bundle of Twine/Jute string(You can also use Fabric or Yarn or Ribbon)
For the Spider
Pipe cleaners - 8 count
First we have to create the spokes of the web. Stretch the twine and Tie the ends as shown below
Then stretch another twine across perpendicular to the first, creating a cross shape. Continue and have two more twines in crisscross pattern as shown below
Cj found it little difficult to tie and weave. So she took over the job of taking pictures with camera.
To make strong spoke base, tie the intersection of the twines with a small piece of twine as shown below. Trim off the excess string
I started spinning the web from the outside ie from the hula hoop. You can spin from the intersection too. Tie the twine to one of the spoke and twist the twine around the next spoke in a spiral pattern and continue spinning the web
When the web is complete, secure the loose end of yarn to one of the Spoke or the intersection of the spokes.
We made this little brown spider following the Tutorial - Fuzzy stick spiders on Craftprojectideas.com. CJ loves her little spider. She was playing with it for quiet a long time.
CJ had taken the below picture in the camera. When I asked her "why the spider is standing like that?" She replied "Mommy he is trying to get out of his web"
The Hula hoop spider web and spider can be used as a simple Halloween decor or a Wreath. Can be an add-on for a Spider costume too.
