Spiderweb Doily Canvas Art

The Halloween decor is in full swing at our house! Now that our mantel and front door are done, I decided to create a few simple Halloween art pieces. Here is an easy project you can complete in less than 30 minutes… a Spiderweb Canvas {made with a doily and bakers twine!}

Supplies you’ll need:

  • doily {I found mine a few months ago in the $1 bins at Michaels}
  • wrapped canvas {mine is an 11×14 size}
  • bakers twine {gray/white, or black/white}
  • spider stickers {these glittered ones are Jolee’s Boutique from Michaels}
  • chipboard stickers, stamps, or stencils {for the “eek!”}
To create a “spiderweb” effect, I weaved a piece of bakers twine through my doily across its entire length. The I repeated the process five times, to create a total of six spiderweb strings. I secured the ends of the twine to the back of the canvas with clear tape. Here’s a look at the finished web:
Then I just added the chipboard letter stickers to say “eek!” and stuck on my cute little glittered spider.

So simple, and it turned out so cute!
Here are some other fun Halloween projects:
