Spider web decorations are a great way to add some spookiness to your Halloween party. They’re fairly easy to hang, so you won’t have to worry about spending hours trying to figure it out. If you’ve never hung spider webs before, here’s what you need to do:
Measure the size of the area where you will place the decoration.
When you’re hanging a spider web decoration, it’s important to make sure that the decoration is of the right size. If the decoration is too big, it will look awkward and out of place; if it’s too small, it won’t do its job as an accent piece. To measure the size of your space where you’ll be placing your spider web decoration, use either a ruler or measuring tape. Measurements in inches are sufficient for this task.
Pull apart the spider web decorations.
To hang your spider web decorations, you’ll need to pull them apart. Start by cutting along the edges of one of the spider webs with a pair of scissors. You can cut just about anywhere along the edge; it doesn’t matter too much where you make your cuts or how many inches apart they are. Remember: don’t pull apart too much or you will pull your spider web apart!
Once you’ve made some cuts in one of these pieces, use those cut ends as hanging points and place them on top of another piece of decoration (or even in front). Repeat this step until all pieces have been placed together in some way shape or form that makes sense to you!
Place them in a dry and shaded area to keep them from cracking.
The last step is to place your spider webs in a dry and shaded area, away from direct sunlight. This will help them to last longer, because if they get wet and then dried out again, the sealant can crack or break. Keep this in mind as you choose where to store your decorations for Halloween!
Spider webs are a Halloween classic, and they’re easy to make at home. Spider web decorations can be used in any room of the house—they are particularly effective in bedrooms and bathrooms, but they look great anywhere.
If you want to make your own spider web decorations, here’s how:
- Cut a piece of cardboard into a triangle shape. The size should be large enough so that it will cover where you want to hang it from the ceiling or wall (you’ll be cutting holes for the string). If using paper instead of cardboard, use scissors or an X-acto knife to cut out your desired shape.
- Decide which direction you’d like your spider web design to go on the cardboard/paper and lay out some glue there; then sprinkle salt over it evenly until all areas with glue are covered with salt crystals. After this dries (it should only take about 20 minutes), remove excess crystals by brushing them off with a small brush or cloth wiping away excess moisture if necessary.* Tie one end of each stringy rope around one end hole made earlier so that when hung up both sides will hang down equally.* Insert first piece into center hole using twine loops as handles so that way when hung up both sides will hang down equally.* Repeat steps 1 through 3 for second sheet/cardboard sheet (or paper).
Giant Spider Halloween Decorations on our House
The giant spider is one of the most popular Halloween decorations. It has been around for many years, and it’s still popular among kids and adults alike.
It’s actually not hard to make a giant spider decoration yourself at home. Here are some ideas on how to do this:
- Use a wire hanger and spray paint it black. Then, put yellow eyes on the head of the spider using construction paper or contact paper. You can also use red yarn for the legs and green yarn for the body of the spider.
- You can also use pipe cleaners for the legs of your giant spider. Make sure that you cut them into small pieces so that they won’t be too heavy for your wire hanger!
- Another option is to use pipe cleaners to make thin legs for your giant spider. You can then attach these legs to your wire hanger using tape or glue (depending on how permanent you want your creation to be).
Here are some reasons why I LOVE this giant spider theme:
It’s super cheap – The only thing we had to buy were some plastic spiders and some fake spider webs. We already had a black tarp and rope lights on hand, so those were free too!
It’s easy to put up – You don’t need any special tools or skills; just throw it up there and go!
It doesn’t take much time – With two adults working together, we had our spider web up in less than an hour, including taking down all the decorations from last year which were still up on our house (which took longer than putting up everything else).
Halloween is coming up and we have been gathering some fun Halloween decorations to hang on our house. As you can see in the photo above, we have a lot of spider decorations in different sizes.
We have a large spider hanging on the front door, two smaller spiders hanging on each side of our front door window and another large spider hanging on the garage door. We also have a few smaller spiders scattered throughout the yard that are attached to stakes in the ground.
How Do You Hang Giant Spider Décor on a House?
The first thing I want to say is that if you are hanging any Halloween decorations from your roof or overhanging branches, there needs to be something supporting them from underneath. The weight of these giant spiders can cause damage if they fall from above. We used hangers from Lowe’s Home Improvement Center to support our giant spiders from underneath our house so that they would not bend or break off when we hung them up high by using string or wire.
Once you have them, you can hang them anywhere! Just make sure to measure the size of your area first so that you know what kind of spider web decorations will fit best.
