Barren branches laden with spooky “spider webbing” suggest a haunted
the cheery florals arranged within, an eerie chill sweeps through
the room when this ominous arrangement is delivered or placed upon a
party table. While the range of striking fall tones make it suitable
for autumn, this composition becomes truly terrifying with the
addition of barren branches covered with webbing.
Although faux webbing is available, this example is more like
the real spidery silk because it’s made from hot-melt (pan) glue, a
similarly sticky substance. Using a simple technique, gobs of
hot-glue, adhered to two blocks of plastic foam, are dabbed together
and then pulled and stretched apart. The sticky strands are then
wound around the branches to complete the frightful effect.
