Spider Web Canvases

I am in full swing for Halloween!!

I think I am having more fun this year than ever coming up with Halloween crafts and I am pulling out all the boxes this week!!

I am still moving everything around so I doubt that this is the way it will all end up but the canvases are my latest project…

Actually, when I look at his picture, the countdown blocks were done for $2 and the ghosts were done for $2 and the canvas spiderwebs were done for $4, I guess you could say I like a frugal craft.

But here is how I made the spiderweb canvases:

I started with a 3 pack of flat canvases from Big Lots. These are awesome, Big Lots is down the street and it is almost dangerous because they have such great canvas prices!

Then I painted them back, probably with the smallest brush ever from Avery’s art supply box, just saying.

Once they were dry, I grabbed the washi tape and yarn and tapped one end to the back of the canvas.

I wrapped the yarn around the vanvas a number of times and then tapped the end when I was done.

Here is a front view.

Then I grabbed my spider rings that I had left over and cut the ring portion off and glued a few onto my yarn webs.
