How to make spider web window silhouette
A spider web is the easiest of Halloween window silhouettes! First you need to decide whether you want it in the corner of the windows or centrally. Then, depending on the size of the windows, cut thin strips of about 1 cm. Glue two strips crossing each other and then again two strips diagonally over the first two, making a total of 4 long strips for the web base. Cut more thin strips and glue them piece by piece diagonally to obtain the cobweb shape. When your spider web is ready, glue a thin cord or a thin strip and a spider silhouette.
