Glue-Resist Spiderweb

The inspiration for today's project came from this gorgeous watercolor by Kirsten Bailey. She used a masking liquid and watercolors for her spiderweb art. I used completely different materials. Can you guess what they are?

Materials #1 and 2 are watercolor paper and white glue. Use the glue to draw a freehand spiderweb pattern on the paper. Let the glue dry overnight.

Use a cotton ball to apply chalk over the dried glue. I used two blues and a purple.

Cut a spider silhouette from black cardstock and glue it on the web. That's all there is to it!


  1. That looks AMAZING! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. A fun solution to what do to with all of the chalk I have leftover! Great project Cindy.

  3. WOW! What a great idea! I never would have thought to use plain white glue and chalk! Your spider web is gorgeous!!! ( . . . and I want to thank you for your words left at my blog, too. Hugs to you, my friend!)
