materials needed to make sparkly and lacy yarn spider webs

How to make sparkly and lacy yarn spider webs:

1.  Grab your yarn and cut out similar sized strands.  (I taped down a ruler and used a piece of tape to mark 6.")  Then, my son cut a ton of 6" strands.

2.  Tape down your freezer paper.

3.  Pour your Mod Podge into a disposable pie plate.  Dump your yarn into the pie plate and coat everything.

4.  Let's create your spider webs!  We created the intersecting "*" portion first, and then swirled on some extra pieces of yarn around it.  The yarn was placed on freezer paper so that it would be easier to peel off.

5.  Now let's make them sparkle!  We used glittersequins,  and glitter glue

6.  We made our spiderwebs at night and tried peeling them off the next morning.  Big mistake! The glue still wasn't dried.  Overall, it took about 12 hours for everything to dry.  Then, they just peeled right on off!
