Tools and Materialsscissors
black paint and a paintbrush
large wood frame
small wire nails
4 to 8 felt furniture pads
small toy spiders
white cotton spider webbing
yellow or orange yarn
picture hanging kit if not already attached to frame
Paint the Frame
Paint the frame black and let it dry.
Nail and Pad the Back
On the back of the frame, along the edge, hammer in the small wire nails. Insert the nails so only about a 1/4" is sticking out of the frame.
Place the felt pads on the back of the frame along the corners so the nails will not scratch the house or door.
String the Yarn
Wrap the yarn on the wires going back and forth across the frame in a random pattern. Tie off the yarn periodically.
Behind the yarn, stretch out some of the white cotton material along the same nails.
Place Your Message
Place the letters in a random pattern onto the yarn, close enough together so you can read the word "Welcome". We used self-adhesive, store-bought letters, but you can print out your own message on sticky paper.
Place the spiders along the front and tuck into the yarn and webbing.
