Making a Hot Glue Spiderweb Jar

We have a lot of glass jars saved up. With a little hot glue and a dab of paint, they can be transformed into cute spiderweb decorations. You can fill them with candy, drop LED lights inside, or display as is.


Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 1 jar


  • 1 glass jar
  • hot glue gun with glue
  • black acrylic paint
  • paintbrush
  • X-Acto knife


  1. To make your spiderweb, using your hot glue gun, draw a big asterisk on your jar.
  2. Starting from the center, draw little U's between the lines going around in a circle.
  3. Now make a second circle of bigger U's further out.
  4. And a third circle of U's further out.
  5. 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.
  6. Draw on 8 little legs with the glue, then paint the spider black. Let dry.
  7. 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!
