Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - supplies


  1. To make your spiderweb, using your hot glue gun, draw a big asterisk on your jar.
  2. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - creating hot glue spider web on jar, asterisk
  3. Starting from the center, draw little U's between the lines going around in a circle.
  4. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - make little Us around the center between the straight lines
  5. Now make a second circle of bigger U's further out.
  6. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - add a second circle of Us further out
  7. And a third circle of U's further out.
  8. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - and a third

  9. To make your spider body, fill in a circle of hot glue somewhere on your spiderweb. Add a smaller circle of hot glue right above it for its head.
  10. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - make a filled in circle of glue on the wed for the spider's body and then a smaller one for its head
  11. Draw on 8 little legs with the glue, then paint the spider black. Let dry.
  12. Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar - add 8 glue legs and then paint black
  13. With your X-Acto knife, go around the spider and slice off any excess glue to make it look neater. I like leaving the web a bit stringy with the hot glue as it looks more real!
