I’ve been dying to try one of these watercolor projects for a long time. The spider web design is one of my favorites. We are in full Halloween swing around here so I did this fun project with the girls today. 

Here is what you’ll need to make Watercolor Spider Webs:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • white watercolor paper
  • paint brushes
  • orange and black watercolors
  • spider stickers

First, you’ll need to make the glue. Combine the water, Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar, and all-purpose flour on low heat. 

(NOTE: make sure you heat on low heat, it’s the difference between MAKING glue and BAKING glue.)Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 4.42.13 PM

Paint a spider web onto the watercolor paper. It’s ok if it’s raised up off the paper. Allow your web to dry for a few hours or even overnight. Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 4.42.48 PM

Start painting! We used a mix of colors but you can stick to Halloween black and orange if you like. Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 4.43.11 PM

 I recommend using a wide paintbrush to sweep across the full page. You want to completely cover the page so that your web comes through. You can make some cool hidden messages on paper like this! Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 4.43.35 PM

Add some spider stickers or some fun 3D spiders to glue to the paper to make it look extra spooky. Surprise Watercolor Spider Webs VIDEO

Our web came out pretty good. I’m going to use more glue next time and make it tie died!
