I always like to work on some type of needlework during the General Conference meetings our church holds.

(General conference is a church meeting for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that is broadcast though out the world. Our leaders teach us for multiple sessions over two days. It's always enlightening and fulfilling.  We get to watch at home on the couch and I always like to get a project done while listening.)

This year, I had the idea to make some spider web embroidery patterns to work on during conference.

I think it's fun to make seasonal embroidery art. I generally go for quick and simple needlework, like this Lucky embroidery for St. Patrick's Day. Or this Love one for Valentines Day.

Sometimes I try to learn a new stitch like I did with this Mother's Day Apron, or add embellishments like this embroidered pillow.

This time I kept it nice and simple with a back stitch and added some fun spider buttons for embellishment.

How to Make Spider Web Embroidery Art


Let's get started! This is an easy project that is fairly quick when you consider that it's hand embroidery. Click the image below for the free pattern.

  1. Print off the spider web pattern.
  2. Cut pieces of muslin about 7 or 11 inches square, depending on if you're making the small or larger web.
  3. Tape the pattern to a window (while it's light outside). Tape the fabric on top. Using a pencil, trace the pattern. (You could use a light box instead if you have one.)
  4. Place the fabric in the embroidery hoop and back stitch along the lines. For the EEK!, back stitch along the edges of the letters. Then fill in the center with criss crossed lines.
  5. Remove the fabric from the hoop. 
  6. Paint along the outer edge and the top of the embroidery hoop with the metallic black paint.
  7. Let paint dry completely.
  8. Press embroidery flat if needed. Insert into embroidery hoops.
  9. Trim excess, leaving about 1 inch of fabric.
  10. Using a hot glue gun, adhere the fabric to the inner side of the hoop.
  11. Attach the spider buttons to the needlework. For the small web, I opted to have the spider "hang" from the web. It is not attached to the fabric, but just to the thread it is hanging from.







The spider webs work up really quickly and it's the perfect project for beginners.
