String Spider Web

String Spider WebThis string spiders web is a really simple project to add a point of interest to your home or garden.

You will need

String or Yarn

How to

  1. I thought this railing would be the perfect place to make a spiders web as it gave me four sides to work with. Choose a similar space to work in.
  2. Begin by tying one end of a length of string to the top rail, tie the other end  further along the rail allowing the string to hang down. The length of the string will depend upon the space you have to work with.
  3. Take a second piece of string and tie it low down on the side rail. Pass the string though the loop of the first piece you tied and then tie off on the opposite rail. This should pull both pieces taut.
  4. Continue to tie lengths of string across the space, looping through the pieces already in situ so that they all converge in the centre. I used four lengths of string across the space, meeting in the centre to form eight spokes.
  5. Tie the loose end of the ball of string to the centre. Weave in and out between the spokes to form a spiral, go around four times.
  6. Continue to work in a spiral but begin to tie an overhand knot where the spiral meets the spoke. As you work around gradually increase the gap between rounds. Continue until your have filled the space.
  7. Paint the string that wraps around the railing in a matching colour to camouflage.
