This coffee filter spider web craft is a favorite DIY Halloween decoration. Easy to make and just a tad spooky! They look wonderful grouped on a window.

Okay folks. We have more spider web crafts we’ve been working on to get into the Halloween spirit, and decorate our homes.

Coffee filter spider webs and little felt spiders!

These are inspired by the coffee filter snowflakes we’ve made before, as well as the coffee filter hearts we’ve decorated our windows with around Valentine’s Day.

Coffee filters are perfect for this sort of scissor craft because they are thin without being flimsy, making it easier for kids to cut through multiple layers.

Plus they are already round. And somewhat transparent, making them great for window decoration.

A Halloween Spider Web Craft


Note: These are so easy, you probably don’t need any how-to instruction. But here are a few different ways we made these spider webs.


  1. Fold your coffee filter

    Before you start cutting, fold up your coffee filter in half, and then in half again, and continue until you have a skinny triangle.

  2. Make your cuts

    The easiest of all: just make a series of “V” cuts down one side of the folded coffee filter.

    The next easiest: basically cutting rectangles along one side of the folded coffee filter.

    And last we made the rectangular cuts along both sides (FYI this one is made from a larger piece of white tissue paper, rather than a coffee filter).

  3. Hang your webs

    Glue your coffee filter spider webs to the window with a few strategic dabs from a glue stick (it washes off easily when it’s time to take them down).

  4. Add spiders!

    Cut out a few tiny spiders from black felt (or black construction paper) and glue them to your webs!
