Here is a quick and easy project. All you need are a handful of black hot glue sticks and a non-stick surface – I chose the mat that came with my glue gun.
To make the web, draw four intersecting lines; then, starting at the center, begin to swirl your glue out towards the ends of the lines. Viola, a nice little spider web to add to windows, mirrors, fridge doors, etc.
*Caution, it’s still glue, so I wouldn’t recommend putting them on a south facing window that gets a good amount of sun. I learned the hard way, it still comes off, but it took a bit of work.
Now, here’s the real story behind this little project. I started out making Christmas present window clings with the kids. I had thought if I made the design with the hot glue, they could fill it in with glitter glue and it would make lovely, colorful clings. Yeah, not so much the glitter glue either disappeared – and trust me, we had it on thick – or it peeled right out of the design. So I’m back to the drawing board. At least the kids still had fun making them!
