Seaweed Art Cards
  • Spooky Fun

    While planning your Halloween decorations this year, why not include some actual spider webs? You can preserve your own with just a few household supplies. When looking for one, make sure you find one that doesn’t have any occupants. You wouldn’t want to take someone’s home.

    Materials:

    Black construction paper (You may want to back the paper with some cardboard)

    Non-aerosol hair spray

    Talcum powder

     Sprinkle the strands of the web with the talcum powder. Working quickly, spray the web gently on both sides with the hairspray. Hold the paper behind the web. Pinch off the web’s “guylines” where it is fastened and let the web fall onto the paper. The wet spray will help it stick. Once it dries, spray it again to give it a protective coating. If you like, frame your masterpiece to hang on your child’s bedroom wall.
