CRAFT STICK SPIDER WEB   
Written by: Amanda Formaro [Amanda Formaro is the crafty, entrepreneurial mother of four children. | www.craftsbyamanda.com]

Grade: K-6

Age: 5-12

Activity Summary:

Children can create spider webs using craft sticks. Pom pom spiders can be added as well. This is a fun project for elementary aged kids. Younger ones can join in the fun, but a grown up will need to do a little gluing for get them first.

What You Need:

  • 3 craft sticks
  • Purple paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Black yarn
  • 1 medium light green pom-pom
  • 1 light green chenille stem
  • 2 purple wiggle eyes
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Paint the craft sticks purple and let dry.
  2. Glue the wiggle eyes to the pom-pom.
  3. Cut the chenille stem into eight equal pieces. Bend each piece at a 90 degree angle. Glue the legs onto the pom-pom. Set the spider aside to dry.
  4. Meanwhile, glue the three craft sticks into a flower shape, crossing over each other.
  5. Glue the end of the yarn to one of the craft sticks. Holding that piece with your finger, turn the sticks over and begin wrapping the yarn from stick to stick, wrapping once around each stick as you work your way around in the “flower”. Once you get all the way around, adjust the yarn upward and continue going around again. Do this a third time to complete the web.
  6.  
  7. Turn the sticks over to the backside and add glue to all the yarn intersections. Let dry.
  8. When dry, turn over and glue the spider to the web.
Tip: This wrapping technique is similar to that of a dream catcher. Simply stretch, wrap, stretch, wrap, and so on.
