Spooky Spiderwebs

Oh, what tangled webs we weave. Muahahahaha!

It’s that time of year again, when the ghosts and goblins (our kids) come out to beg for candy, and it’s our job (as responsible parents) to scare them. And every year I add just a little more to my graveyard of fun (the front yard), this year … Spooky Spiderwebs.

They are hauntingly easy to make and will be the perfect addition to your decor.

Here is how to make Spooky Spiderwebs … if you dare!

All you need are large trash bags, scissors and a small clip.

1) Start by unfolding the bag and lay it out on a flat surface.
2) Then, fold the bag in half vertically and then again horizontally.
3) Next, hold one corner and fold corner to corner to make a triangle and then fold again to make a smaller triangle. (This is similar to the way you would fold paper to make snowflakes.)
4) Fold the center corner over and clip it in place.
5) Last, cut 1 to 2 inch thick strips from the outside (the loose ends) to the inside (the fold), leaving about an inch on the inside. On the last cut, cut all the way to the end, removing the stray ends of the bag.

Unfold the webs and, “It’s alive. It’s alive!”
Hang them up inside or outside using push-pins or black electrical tape.
