I'm walking in a spider web...of yarn!

Arachnophobia Attack!

This is an inexpensive way to give any room a huge eerie impact! 
We literally spent less than $3.00.

What you need to weave your web:
Scotch Tape.

Make your frame:
Tape the ends of pieces of yarn to create an X.
Tape other crisscrossing lines or "spokes".

Create the spiral:
Tie a new piece of yarn on a spoke close to the center of the web. 
Start weaving the piece of yarn.
Over the spoke, loop it back under the same spoke and continue to the next spoke!
Over, under and around.

Eventually the piece of yarn will run out.  
Just tie off at the end and continue with a new piece of yarn.

It took a bit of trial and error to get it right but it's pretty easy to get the hang of it.
Keep the yarn taught.
Imperfections make the web more realistic and creepy.

Be the spider.
