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
