Fall Spider Web Craft

So the Fall is slowly coming upon us, but don't be fooled, September is only 6 days away so we are well on our way to full blow Fall weather. Along with the weather changes there are many things right like the leaves changing colors and falling, the morning dew returning (at least here in Delaware), and most importantly, the spider webs. Ever notice that there are so many more spiderwebs in the fall than in the spring? Well heres why:
"Garden spiders have a seasonal timetable. They hatch in the spring, reproduce and die in the fall. So while they lie low in the early summer (trying to keep from being eaten), by now the survivors are large enough to start spinning webs. And they're in a hurry because the females need to lay their eggs and, well, you know ... that "die" part." To read this article click here

But enough about that, if you are a craft person like me then here is a simple fun activity to do with kids of any age, or even just for yourself.

All you need is:
1 can, white spray paint
1 piece of construction paper

All you need to do is:
Find spider web, and spray it all over with the spray paint, then place the construction paper behind the web and press it up against the web. Then cut the web along the edges of the paper, and Voila!!!

You can also switch up the colors. My mini and I decided to use glow in the dark paint and make some glow in the dark webs for halloween. Be creative, and please share your spider webs with me.
