Looking for an easy activity to do with the kids this Halloween? How about embroidering their own unique spider web?
- Embroidering hoop
- Black fabric
- White thread
- Embroidery needle
Place the fabric into the hoop and thread the needle — be sure to put in a knot in the center to hold it in place. First, put in straight lines to form the supporting web structure. Next, comes the fun part — stitching in the circular parts of the web. These could be close together, far apart, concentric, or totally random — just make sure the new lines touch the existing ones (the star/asterisk shape).
Finally, add a spider to your design. The beauty of this activity is that each completed project will look as unique as an actual spider’s web!
