Embroidery Hoops aren’t just for sewing. Create a few Lace Spiderweb Hoop Crafts to decorate your home this Halloween.
This quick and easy pair of Lace Spiderweb Hoop crafts goes together in just about 30 minutes with limited supplies. Fun to give as a gift or keep for yourself.
Here’s what you need to make your own Lace Spiderweb Hoops:
- Wooden Embroidery Hoops – 3” and 5” in diameter
- Cotton Lace Doilies – 4” and 6” in diameter
- Recycled Wine Corks – two
- Black Pom Poms, two – Dollar Store
- Black Tinsel Pipe Cleaners, eight – Dollar Store
- Wiggle Eyes, four – Dollar Store
- Baker’s Twine, colors – Dollar Store
- Black Acrylic Craft Paint
- Fabric Glue
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brush
Basecoat all sides of the two recycled wine corks with black craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat if necessary.
Fit the Lace Doilies loosely into the embroidery hoops. Pull gently from the back to ensure the lace is taught and then tighten the screw at the top of the hoop. Trim the excess Lace from the back of the embroidery hoop with scissors. Apply a thin line of Fabric Glue to the cut edge of the Lace to secure. Set aside to dry. This craft was made with cotton lace doilies from the craft store, but any type of lace would work.
Wrap four black pipe cleaners around each cork, twisting to secure. Trim any excess pipe cleaner with scissors. Bend pipe cleaners to create the spiders’ legs.
Attach the two pom poms to the tops of the wine corks for the spiders’ heads with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Glue two small wiggle eyes onto each of the pom pom spider heads with the glue gun.
Either attach the spiders permanently onto the hoop webs with a glue gun and glue sticks, or use the pipe cleaner legs to connect the spiders to the lace webs.
Tie two tiny bows from colored Baker’s twine and attach to the spiders’ necks with a glue gun and glue sticks.
I’m seriously obsessed with the cuteness of these! Go through your stash of doilies and make some of your own! I can’t wait to see them all!
