Since we’re such big Halloween freaks, I’ve been squeezing my brain to come up with home decor ideas that are a bit out of the ordinary. And I think this super cool DIY spider web fits the bill perfectly!

I don’t see myself as an experienced crafter as I don’t do it as often as I should and would love to. But when I do craft, I like to do it in style (modesty is not my middle name, as you may have noticed lol). I do like the classic spider web decoration ideas but it seems like everybody has one these days and they get quite boring to look at after a while. So I thought I should make my own Halloween spider web decoration, using plain, ugly, boring wire!

I stumbled upon a wire spider web on Etsy and I got so psyched! This web totally had my name on it, it was practically begging me to buy it! I was almost there only to cool down real fast when I saw the price. A shocking $75 for something I figured it won’t cost me more than $10 and almost anyone can make. I though I should give it a try and make my own, using supplies I already had on hand as I was no longer willing to pay any money for this project (budget freak here! lol).

Making my own DIY spider web was really, really easy! The only part I found a bit tricky was curling the wire as I didn’t have proper pliers at that time. Round tip pliers work so much better for this project but if you don’t want to spend any money for something you may never use again, I made a very short video below, to show you how I curled the wire with the pliers I had. Kind of a rookie video but it’ll do for now!

If you’re decorating for Halloween or just like to add some arachnid-inspired decor to your home, make this DIY spider web, a fairly easy project that doesn’t require much skill. Just as a spider weaves its silk, you will use wire to design your spiderweb. You can use a circle design or a triangular as I did, if you like to get more creative.

When it’s done, hang your wire spider web from the ceiling or on your front door instead of a wreath or just display it on a shelf. I hooked mine to a door for photography purposes but I find this design works really well outdoors so I hooked mine in the backyard. So if you plan an outdoor party or have antique looking furniture or doors, this DIY wire spider web is the perfect addition to your decor.

Halloween spider web

Diy wire spider web

Materials:

  • wire (or barbed wire if you feel adventurous and have it on hand; I didn’t)
  • pliers (round tip are the best)
  • cutting pliers (to cut the wire)
  • measuring tape
  • gloves (if you can work with gloves on; I can’t but I did hurt a finger pretty badly because of that)

Wound

  • optional, black spray paint and primer if your wire is not painted or is of a different color.

Directions:

Step 1  – Making the “frame”

  • Start by deciding how wide your web will be (Mine had 20″ long on each side)
  • If you make yours as big as mine, grab the wire roll and cut 2 x 40″ wires
  • Twist the wires around each other, leaving one longer than the other at each end
  • Bend the newly formed double wire to a 90 degrees (this is the main frame)

Step 2 – Making the inside of the web

  • Cut 6 x 18 ” wires
  • Grab 2 of these at a time and twist around each other as you did with the main frame above (I’ll call these wands)

Step 3 – Making the curls

  • You need to curl the ends on all wands
  • Grab one end and begin working on one wire at a time on each end
  • Grab the wire end with your pliers and make a small loop
  • Twist the loop under until you get the curl you like
  • Do the same with the other wire on the same end and repeat for all wands
  • This is how it should all look like once curling is done

Step 4 – Attaching the curled wires to the frame

  • Take one of the wands and twist one end around the middle of the main frame, using your pliers to set in place. Push the curly part towards the inside.
  • Do this with all 3 wands

Step 5 – Making the net

  • Cut a few wires to form the inside web net (you may need longer or shorter wires; or you can use a very long piece of wire, though I found this method harder)
  • Join each wand with these wires until you are happy with how your net looks like
  • Slightly bend each small wire in between wands, towards the center of the web.
  • Optional – prime and spray paint the web if you like a darker color and a more polished look (I did)
  • Now hang your beautiful art anywhere around the house or outdoors and wow your guests!

    1. Hi Judi. I’m happy you liked my tutorial and considering giving it a try. It really doesn’t matter what gauge you choose as long as it’s easy to bend and twist with your hands. Using pliers makes it easier but a flexible gauge is always the best choice makes.

    1. Thanks so much Emma. It’s doing well now, it was painful just for the day. But lesson learned. Better spend more time on a project wearing gloves than having that happen.

      1. Maybe just wrap finger tips with white “medical” tape. If you put one piece front to back over the nail and wrap a couple times around, you should have it covered but still have flexibility.
