Trace the lines of your spider web with white glue. You want the lines of glue to be a little thick so that your web doesn't break later.

Let your spider web dry and then shake off the excess glitter. (We put ours back in the bottle to reuse for other kids crafts.)

This is the best part of this Halloween craft! Carefully peel the whole thing off of the plastic wrap.

By the way, if you use the Press-n-Seal stuff, you can put it up on a window ahead of time to draw out a spider web that will fit the space.

    This craft helped me look like supermom yesterday! My daughter homeschools during the day (my mother teaches her) while I’m at work. I came home at lunch and we were able to do this project on my lunch break. It was fast, fun, easy, and we had all the materials on hand. Awesome! Thanks for another winner!

    I’d estimate at least 20-30 minutes, but test it by touching. When it’s hardened and doesn’t feel soft in the middle, it’s ready to go!

    Good day, will the glue from a glue gun also work, I don’t have white glue with me and need it for tomorrow

    Hi Berdine, I’m not sure if a glue gun would work, especially because when it dries it is harder than white glue. But I would test a small amount to see, it just might work!

    I don’t believe a glue gun would work, because you need to sprinkle the glitter on to wet glue. Hot glue dries really, really fast.
