Once upon a time, I created a sweet simple project for one of my dining room walls: Doilies in the Round.
Well, I decided to “spookify” them for Halloween by recreating this project as a spider web. 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.
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. Plus, dyeing them is a great way to cover up stains and blemishes in your doilies!
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. Doesn’t that look awesome?? A web in need of some embellishments.
Definitely looking more Halloween-ish! A couple of toy spiders were glued onto the doily…
And then I added a third spider, hanging from a thread!
Totally LOVE these! Must make more!
I’m definitely getting into the Halloween spirit with these!! Now I need to focus on this year’s costume…
