Easy Yarn Spider Web Embroidery Hoop Hanging Decor

Now that  pumpkin spice latte season is here, it’s time to start breaking out the tall boots, sweaters, an maybe a bit of the spooky stuff. I found this huge embroidery hoop at the craft store and I thought it would be kind of fun to make Halloween decor out of it. While I am normally a big NOPE when it comes to spiders, this project ended up so cute I decided that fake spiders were maybe okay. And when I say okay, I mean maybe. lol.  I don’t mind a little spider FAKE web Halloween decor, it’s just the real things. All you need to make an easy yarn spider web embroidery hoop  is a large embroidery hoop, yarn, tacky craft glue and a few faux spiders. This would be so cute as a wall or door hanger.

To make your embroidery hoop Halloween decor, start by separating the two sections of your embroidery hoop. Right now you are only going to use the inner hoop with out the tightening mechanism on it.

Use two embroidery hoops

Tie the end of your yarn onto the inner hoop. I found this really cute black and white yarn that had solid parts and stripes. I used the black yarn for the web and the striped yarn for hanging and the hanging spider.

After you’ve tied your yarn to the hoop,start wrapping it around the outside, criss-crossing as you go. Once you’ve gone all of the way around, as many times as you like, cut and tie it off making sure the yarn stays tight. Adding a drop of glue to where the yarn and the hoop meet will help hold it in place.

Once you’ve done that, then put the inner hoop back inside the outer hoop. This will also help to keep the yarn in place. I found a two pack of these Halloween spiders and decided to glue one onto the web and have the other dangling slightly.
