Shiny Spider Web Art

Shiny Spider Web Art



This shiny spider web art activity is so simple! Big Brother had tons of fun creating various “webs”, especially after we looked at several online. I was inspired by our shiny fishbowls we made back when we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

I can’t stand spiders, but I definitely have an appreciation and fascination for their beautifully intricate webs. This would be a fun project to do after investigating spider webs around your house…especially if the webs have dew on them since that is what the art looks like!

We found this little guy outside on our deck!


Here’s what you’ll need:  Light Corn Syrup, black construction paper, and a squeeze bottle of some sort.



1. Carefully pour your corn syrup into the squeeze bottle (or use a funnel).




2. Give your child the squeeze bottle and let him/her get started making their webs.














Allow the corn syrup to dry for at least 12-24 hours.










 I cut a few pieces of pipe cleaner and quickly created a makeshift spider to add to our webs.
