Hot glue is a fabulous material that can be used to make quick and uncomplicated spider webs. These webs will add a touch of the gothic to Halloween decorations and can be combined with candles and pumpkins to create a buffet centrepiece. Children will be fascinated with the process of making these spider webs and can assist in the completed web peeling process. Hot glue can cause burns, however, so an adult should be placed in charge of the hot glue gun.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Poly cutting board
