A Halloween Web of Glitter

Happy Halloween everyone!  It’s Kelly here today to share a fun, simple technique to create your own spider web.  I love doing Halloween layouts and thought it was time to put together an album for all of my Halloween pages.  So I decided to make a ‘cover page’ for this scrapbook, and here it is:

If you’ve seen any of our “Wear Your Adhesives On the Outside” blog posts, then you know that Crafty Power Tape is great for glitter…and with that in mind, I designed this spider web:

I started with a piece of cardstock that I cut down to 11″ x 11″ and used the handy Crafty Power Tape dispenser to cut off strips. I honestly didn’t measure anything and just kept placing down strips quickly.  For more ‘exact’ web lines, I recommend drawing your web with a pencil first.  But I’m not really the ‘exact’ crafter! ha ha

I took off the adhesive backing strips as I went along and was careful that  they didn’t overlap each other.

Finally, I dumped silver glitter all over.

One quick way to get rid of excess glitter is to swipe it away with a Swiffer cloth.

For the spiders, I cut the ovals using my digital cutting machine and then freehand cut the legs. The legs are adhered on the back with Dodz™ Small.

Their fangs are actually Creative Photo Corners!  It’s hard to see but those little fangs are really sparkly and cute!

kellyklapstein-web-2I placed two white Creative Photo Corners upside down and underneath the spider so the sticky triangular point was exposed. kellyklapstein-web-11Then I sprinkled those fangs with clear glitter.
kellyklapstein-web-12I adhered the spiders to the web with black Crafty Foam Tape. Did you know Crafty Foam Tape comes in black? It’s perfect for working with darker colours like I used here.
kellyklapstein-web-1I also adhered my “Halloween” title with black Crafty Foam Tape.
kellyklapstein-web-3Now I’m excited to put this cover page into my Halloween album and start filling it up with layouts from the past 19 years!

Happy Crafting!
