Creepy Crawly Crochet: Spider Web Doilies

Creepy Crawly Crochet: Spider Web Doilies

Once upon a time, I created a sweet simple project for one of my dining room walls: Doilies in the Round.

So sweet, so pure.

So sweet, so pure.

Well, I decided to “spookify” them for Halloween. It’s such an easy project and I already had the materials…so why not? This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

I took a look at my doily collection and chose three to craft with. The two smaller ones may be more “webby” in nature, but the large one had some tears here and there, and this is a perfect project for your imperfect doilies.

You will do/dye nicely, my pretties…

I hadn’t dyed anything recently- in fact, not since tie-dye made a comeback in 1992. So I dipped my toes in the dyeing arena in order to make my doily-webs a silvery grey.

Dyed vintage crochet doilies like spiderwebs

Perfect shades of spiderweb!

Success! And ridiculously easy. Clearly there will be more dyeing in my future.

But back to the task at hand.

I took a thrifted embroidery hoop and painted it black. Then I just encased the now-grey doily in the hoop, just as I had done in my previous blog post.

Looking good…

Definitely looking more Halloween-ish! A couple of toy spiders were glued onto the doily…

  14. Sadie thanks for this idea I love it. I have been seeing a lot of ideas using embroidery hoops years ago I decorated like crazy with them. glad to see and hear they are back in style again. how was the dyeing process was it pretty easy to use? Susie

      Hi, Susie- thank you for your comment! Yes, the Rit Dye was really easy to use and didn’t take long at all! I used a bucket in my kitchen sink- followed all directions on the box, but they took color so quickly that I didn’t leave them in for nearly as long as the box said to. I figured since they weren’t going to be washed over and over again like clothes, that it was fine to take them out of the dye solution quicker. 🙂

  15. That is AWESOME! Thanks for dropping by the Mommy Needs a Time Out Linky last week! We’re pinning you now and hope to see more from you later!

  16. I love the mummy doll being caught up in this web. It looks super easy.
