spider web placemats/doilies

My Pictures

It took me awhile to figure this out, so I’ll do my best to explain it to you better than what I had!  Bear with me!



square piece of black paper (at least 8×8″ for your first time)


optional – spray adhesive & black glitter




Start with a square piece of paper


Fold the paper in half


then in half the other way


Then fold it diagonally


then diagonally the same way again (it won’t match, there will be extra at the top)


Cut a crescent moon shape at the top with the extra, leaving one point a little higher than the other


alternate cutting pointed slits on each side of the paper, 2-3″ from the inner point


carefully open paper to see your spider web!

If you’re feeling fancy and have the time and supplies (I lacked the latter), iron-out your web, then spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle with black glitter.  Carefully pour off excess glitter, and let dry.  It makes for an incredible, professional little placemat and/or doily (see very top).
