Instructions

Step 1

Print the spiderweb template on 11 x 17 paper. Cut a piece of waxed paper long enough to cover the spiderweb pattern. Tape the template and then the waxed paper on a flat surface.

Step 2

Apply caulk over the pattern.

Cut the tip from the caulk tube to form a thin bead between 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch wide. Begin by following the pattern to lay the center circle. Then make the 10 legs of the spiderweb.

Good to Know

A squeeze-tube of caulk is sufficient to make two or three spiderwebs. For more or larger webs, use a 10-ounce tube in a caulking gun with the tip cut to make the same diameter beads.

Step 3

Connect the legs of the spiderweb.

Connect each leg to the adjoining legs with three arcs. Allow the caulk to dry for 24 hours.

Step 4

Caulk makes a spooky spiderweb when draped over a pumpkin or other Halloween decorations. --Lowe’s Creative Ideas

Peel the web off the waxed paper. Pass the pumpkin stem through the center hole and allow the web to drape loosely around the top of the pumpkin.
