Start by removing the decorative covering from the Hula Hoop. It comes off pretty easy - like a sticker. Place the hula hoop on the ground.
Next it's time to start with the twine. To start, make a small circle with your jute twine and lay it in the middle of your hula hoop on the ground. This circle will be the center of the spider web. Also, don't stress about having it be perfectly in the middle, no spider web is perfectly symmetrical.
Then, begin tying pieces to the circle that is laying in the middle of the hula hoop and middle and extend them out to the hula hoop. Once the length is determined, add a few extra inches and then cut the twine. Then tie it on to the hula hoop. Don't worry if there is overhang, you can trim that up later!
Next, you'll weave more twine in a circular motion around the pieces you just added. As you come to each piece of Jute Twin that extends from the circle to the Hula Hoop, just circle around it and keep going. No need to tie anything!
When you get to the edge, tie it off and trim all your edges.
Lastly, spray paint the entire thing black on both sides. I also attached a big spider that I found at the dollar store using a hot glue gun.
* I chose to use Jute twine for a few reasons. First, the black yard kept breaking and I knew that if I put the DIY Spider Web outside that it would weather easier. Second, I loved the look of the Jute Twine -- it looks scraggily and worn!
