How to Make a Paper Spiderweb Craft

What you need:

  • orange cardstock
  • black cardstock
  • white paper (or white cardstock)
  • black marker
  • glue
  • scissors
  • compass
  • pencil (and an eraser to erase the pencil marks afterward)
  • split pin
  • silver marker
  • ruler
  • googly eyes

Let’s go!

Step by Step Tutorial

On the orange cardstock, draw a 15 x 15 cm square.

Step 1
Cut it out using scissors.

Step 2
Take the black cardstock and cut out four identical triangles.

Step 3
Glue the triangles on each corner of the orange square.

Step 4
On the white paper, draw one web string. We will complete the web later.

Step 5
Cut out the web using scissors.

Step 6
Take the compass and draw a circle in the middle of the web. Our circle has a 4,5 cm diameter.

Step 7
Cut this circle out.

Step 8
On another piece of white paper, draw a circle bigger than the circle you drew in the middle of the web.

Our circle has a 6 cm diameter.

Step 9
Cut it out with your scissors.

Step 10
Take the circle, close the web hole, and connect the circle to the web with a split pin.

Split the ends of the pin afterward, so the circle stays attached to the web.

Step 11
Check if the circle opens and closes correctly and that it covers the hole completely.

Step 12
Cover the hole with the circle and complete the web – draw the rest of the strings with the black marker.

Step 13
Glue the web on the orange cardstock as shown. Be careful not to apply glue on the movable circle.

Step 14
On the black cardstock, draw a tiny spider and a vertical string.

Step 15
Cut them out.

Step 16
Glue your spider and the string onto the orange cardstock inside the hole.

Step 17
With a silver marker, draw a spider’s mouth and also cover the hanging string in silver.

Step 18
Glue the googly eyes on the spider.

Your finished project should look like this.
