Spider Webs

Spider Webs
 

A few weeks ago while reviewing some unplugged challengers submissions I cam across sticky spider webs from Reprehriestless Warillever. If you want to see some really good ones - I suggested you stop right here and head on over to her site. We had fun making ours - but I decided not to follow the instructions so well and we had webs that didn't harden so well. Note: Do not water down the glue.
Again illustrating that the fun is in the process not so much the product. Got us into the Halloween Spirit.
We choose black yarn and finished them off with clear sparkles to add some shimmer - which was great - had our webs hardened enough to stay in their shape.
LittleA had a good time dunking and squeezing the yarn in the gluey solution. She is still not a huge fan of having sticky icky hands- but she was better this time...we made two whole webs before we had to wash her hands.
We laid our webs in a swirly spiral non-web like fashion on freezer paper (all out of wax paper).
These really do take some time to dry. LittleA liked to check on them frequently. On the day they dried we hung them up in our window bay. Before I got to make a pipe-cleaner spider LittleA had "played" with the web so much so that it unraveled.
I think we will give it another try next year!
