What I love the most about cheese cloth spider webs is how easy they are to put up, take down and store!
I like to go a little crazy decorating for Halloween, but I don’t want to spend days putting it all together and days taking it all down.
What do you need:
How to make them:
Purchase cheese cloth from any fabric store. It is very inexpensive! I like to make my cheese cloth look dirty so I pull out all the old tea bags that have been sitting in the cupboard for way too long and make a big pot of tea. After the tea is a nice dark color, I place the unfolded cheese cloth in the tea and let it soak. I allow the cheese cloth to soak 10-20 minutes.
After dyeing, I remove the cheese cloth from the tea, gently rinse and let dry. You can see in the above picture the difference in color after soaking in tea!
Now for the fun part! Drape the cheese cloth wherever you want that eerie effect! As you do this, rip holes in the cloth, and cut it where you want it to hang down. Where ever you cut the cloth, pull on it and the sharpness of the cut will disappear! Experiment with the cloth to create the effect you want!
I also like to use a length of the stained cheese cloth as a table runner for my Halloween table!
