doily spiderweb

I love how sweet and whimsical this crocheted doily spiderweb is. And I love the wee crocheted spider! It's true, get ready to start seeing Halloween posts all over the wide wide world of web! (Oops, pun not intended!) Jen at Lipstick and Laundry made a couple of these sweeties. These might be my favorite Halloween crafts ever. [see the original doily spiderweb here]

If you don't crochet, pick up some dollar store doilies, a couple embroidery hoops at the craft store, and use felt to cut out a bitty spider. If you crochet, it's still a lot quicker to use the dollar store doily, and crochet a few rows in a spiral with black embroidery floss and a teeny crochet hook. Check my teeny Chewbacca zipper pull project for tips on crocheting with embroidery floss.

Project Estimate:

  • Embroidery hoop, $1
  • Crocheted doily, $1 (or 2 for $1)
  • Felt or embroidery floss, $.25, or on hand

Total: $2.00 and up

    Heather, this is so cute! I love the ideas I get from over here, even if I don’t have time to comment. (Ok, it’s more likely that I don’t have a HAND to comment because I’m usually holding a baby. Lol!) I just threw a baby shower where almost everything I needed I got from the Dollar Tree. I LOVE that place! They get waaaay too much of my money :-)

    That is seriously so cute! Best use for a doily that I have seen.

    What a clever use for a doily! I will need to dig through my stash of vintage lines, as I don’t know how to crochet. You could also make the spider out of black pom pom balls and pipe cleaners.
