Step 1

Cut a small or large portion of cotton batting, depending on what size spider web you are making, using sharp scissors.

Step 2

Begin stretching the batting both lengthwise and widthwise with your fingers so the material resembles wispy spider webs. Use several long, thin pieces of batting to create the web.

Step 3

Arrange the pieces of batting onto a wall, door or other surface to build the web. Attach the batting to the surface using invisible tape.

Step 4

Insert plastic spiders into the cotton web to complete the look.
