Hot Glue Spiderweb Bowl - spiderweb candy bowlThis spiderweb bowl is very easy to make. All you need is a bowl and hot glue. Painting it is optional. I love how sturdy it is. It holds my Halloween treats just fine!


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 bowl


  • 1 glass bowl
  • hot glue gun with glue
  • paint and paintbrush or spraypaint (optional)

  1. Wipe off the outside of your glass bowl. If it's got uneven areas or divots, lightly grease it with a piece of paper towel dipped in some cooking oil. This will keep your glue bowl from sticking to it.
  2. Hot Glue Spiderweb Bowl - clean the outside of the bowl
  3. Flip your bowl upside down and fill in a circle of hot glue on top. Draw at least 3 rings of glue around it, going down the bowl.

  5. Draw several lines going down the rings, passing the last ring a bit.
  6. Hot Glue Spiderweb Bowl - draw lines from the center down to the rim crossing over the circles, extend a bit past the last circle

  7. Connect the lines at the bottom by drawing upside down Us between the lines.
