Looking around my house recently I realized I am really lacking in Halloween decor. Now typically if I realize something like that this late in the season I just call it a loss and move on thinking it’s too late to do anything about it.
Not this year. This year I’m going to do something about it. Starting with these easy spiderweb Halloween centerpieces that I made this week.
It took about 30 minutes and adds a little fun to my kitchen table.
How to Make a Spiderweb Halloween Centerpiece:
- About 1/4 yard of black fabric (if you want this to be no sew use black felt, otherwise, get the next two supplies)
- 1/4 yard coordinating fabric for the underside (or just use more black. I used orange and white polkadot.)
- 1/4 yard of fusible fleece
Start out by cutting a spiderweb shape out of your black fabric. If you are doing the no sew version skip to the painting step now.
Cut the same shape out of your coordinating fabric and fusible fleece. Fuse your fleece to the black fabric.
With right sides together sew around the outer edges of your web leaving a small opening to turn it.
Clip all of the curves.
Turn right side out and push out each of the tips with your scissors.
Iron it all flat and the top stitch, closing the opening while you do.
Now get your Americana Writer ready. Starting from the center and working your way out, draw a spiderweb. You might want to practice a little with the Writer first to get the hang of it before starting this. Hold it close to the fabric and squeeze gently. I used an image of a spiderweb to help me in my drawing.
Allow it to dry. I also sprinkled a little orange glitter on just for fun and put an old spooky tree on top.
