Make a Coffee Filter Cobweb Garland

Have you started decorating for Halloween yet?  I love decorating my house for every holiday, but my budget doesn't allow for much spending in the way of non-necessities.  That's why I was so thrilled when Meg of Mega Spooky sent us this awesome, uber-cheap Halloween project.  She used coffee filters to make cobweb cutouts, and then she took it a step farther by assembling them into a festive garland.  [how to make a coffee filter cobweb garland]

The finished garland is elegant enough to hang in your home, while still being cheap and simple enough to make for school Halloween party decorations.  It would also be a great addition to the decor at a Halloween wedding.  For larger cobwebs, look for commercial size coffee filters (restaurant supply stores usually carry them fairly cheaply).  For miniature cobwebs, try using white cupcake liners instead.

Project estimate:

  • Coffee filters, $1
  • White thread or string, on hand or $1 and up
  • Glue, on hand

Total: $1 and up
