Okay ya'll, it's that time of year again! Spiders, witches, zombies, and a host of other creepy creatures come out to play. I love to decorate for Halloween but really love to do it on a dime! I made this Spider Web Candle Holder Halloween craft for just $1.00 and have lots of leftovers for other items. I had a jar and string on hand, if you don't of course yours will cost a little bit more. Each of the supplies can also be found at Dollar Tree making it fun and frugal!
You will need:
a wide mouth jar
white string or yarn
battery operated tea light
hot glue gun/sticks
I used a squat wide mouth Ball jar but you could use any washed upcycled jar with the lable removed, like from olives, parmesan cheese, or pickles.
Start by attaching the end of your string with hot glue on the bottom of your jar. after it has set and hardened continue wrapping around the jar in an irregular fashion. Because the jar is rounded your string/yarn will slip around. I stop this by securing it with a dab of hot glue every so often. When you are satisfied with your “spider web” cut off the end and glue it down.
Cut the ring part off your spider rings and hot glue them around the web, I put mine right over the hot glue dabs I made to secure my string.
Finish your fun spider web candleholder off by placing a battery operated tea light inside ( you can use a real tealight if you wish of course).
The light makes really fun spooky spider web shadows on the wall in the dark. Make a dozen to line your walk, place a couple in the windows, or add a spooky touch to your mantle!
