Button Spider with Web | Halloween Home Decor

Here is a  fun and easy Halloween home decor idea  for you and your children to help celebrate this scary day! This spider web made from rickrack is the home to a little button spider. Fun to make, this easy Halloween home decor idea is sure to get everyone in the spooky spirit.

Materials needed:

The how-to:

1. Paint both pieces of wooden embroidery hoop with white craft paint and let dry.

2. Build rickrack spiderweb on inside hoop. (NOTE: We used a card of vintage baby rickrack, but new will work just as well. Just stain with tea or coffee if desired for a less bright-white look.)

a. Cut a piece of rickrack long enough to stretch tautly across entire hoop and hot glue in place on outer edges.

b. Repeat with 4 additional pieces of rickrack, crossing at the same center point each time. NOTE: For added visual interest, make the center point of the web slightly off-center.


c. Use tiny dots of hot glue to build two circles of rickrack around center point of web.


3. To make button spider, use a tiny dot of hot glue to attach red bead to edge of button. Cut four lengths of red copper wire for legs, about 3-4 inches long each, and hot glue in place on back of button.

4. Once hot glue is completely dry, slightly bend wire legs apart from one another. Use needle nose pliers to bend each end downward. Hot glue spider in place at center of spiderweb.

5. All done! Hang your creepy web (we used red rickrack) and enjoy your crafty new decoration for All Hallow’s Eve.
