Spiderweb Hoop Art With Cricut

What You’ll Need to Make Halloween Hoop Art:

spider web hoop art design in cricut design space

Start by opening the Spiderweb Hoop Art project in Cricut Design Space. You will want to cut the spiderweb layer out of White Everyday Iron-On, the orange spider layer out of Black Glitter Iron-On, the purple spider layer out of Black Cardstock, and the grey circle out of Black Felt.

Start by cutting the spiderweb layer out of white Everyday Iron-On. I love that the Everyday Iron-On includes Cricut’s Strong Bond Guarantee, so I know that my project will stay stuck for years to come!

Weed the excess iron-on using your weeding tools.

Now, I know that I say this is almost ALL of my iron-on and vinyl posts, but if you don’t have a Hooked Weeding Tool yet, GET ONE…now! It’s seriously the best tool ever, and it makes weeding projects like this SO much easier!

Next, cut one black spider out of cardstock and two black spiders out of Glitter Iron-On. You’ll notice that the two glitter spiders face opposite directions – that’s so that you can add one to each side of the cardstock spider!

Use the Rotary Blade (if using the Maker) or the Deep Cut Blade (if using the Explore Air 2) to cut the large circle of black felt.

I looooove the Maker’s Rotary Blade for cutting felt – it’s like a knife through hot butter!

Next, it’s time to start assembling your layers! Layer the glitter spiders on to each side of the cardstock spider and gently sandwich the layers between a folded sheet of parchment paper.

Set the EasyPress to 290 degrees and press for 30 seconds. Allow to cool slightly, and then flip the parchment packet over to press the opposite side.

Peel the plastic backings to reveal your shimmery sparkly spider!

Increase the heat on the EasyPress to 315 degrees.

Press the spiderweb on to the dark fabric for 30 seconds. Flip over and press for an additional 15 seconds before peeling off the plastic backing paper. 

painted orange embroidery hoop

Paint the exterior ring of the embroidery hoop with a layer of orange paint. Allow to dry. 

hoop and pieces for spider web art

Gather all of your pieces – you should now have a double-sided sparkly spider, a spiderweb-decorated piece of fabric, a painted embroidery hoop, and a large felt circle.

Place the spiderweb fabric into the hoop and center the design. 

cutting excess material from embroidery hoop

Trim the edges of the fabric so that they are approximately 1/2″ wide. 

finish glueing the excess onto the embroidery hoop

Use the hot glue gun to secure the extra fabric to the inside of the hoop. 

hot glueing white pom poms to outer edge of hoop

Use the glue gun to add pom pom trim to the back of the hoop if desired.

Use a sharp object (I used my Cricut Paper Piecing Tool) to poke a small hole into the spider’s bum and insert a short length of white embroidery floss. Tie a small knot on the end of the floss. 

layering the back of the hoop art with black

Add a dab of hot glue to the back of the hoop and secure the spider’s “web” of white embroidery floss to the hoop. 

hot glueing back of hoop down

Use the hot glue gun to glue the black felt circle into place and neatly cover the back of the hoop.
