Make It: DIY Spiderweb Doormat

October 1, 2014
spiderweb doormat

Happy first day of October! It finally is beginning to feel like fall around here. The weather is starting to inspire me for my weekly HGTV projects. This week, I’m thinking about crisp leaves, apple picking, fall gardening, pumpkins and trick-or-treating. I’m also thinking about plastic spider rings. My son brought one home from school this week. It was just I needed for inspiration to create this week’s spiderweb doormat for HGTV Gardens. It’s complete with its very own spider! I think this is a fun way to greet trick or treaters and fall’s guests.

It doesn’t take too many supplies to make this craft and I love that the materials were inexpensive. I found the mat at Home Depot. The rest of the spiderweb doormat supplies are from the craft store. It came together in just a couple of hours, including drying time.

Here I am adding the final touch! A creepy black spider to really make this spiderweb doormat feel lived on! I have to admit, I’m not really a fan of spiders but this one, I’ll make an exception for!

I love how this mat turned out. It was super simple and also makes for a family fun craft as well. Overall if you don’t include drying time, the entire project took less than an hour. Try adding more spiders, mix it up by changing the color scheme. Instead of a spiderweb, try decorating your mat with a haunted house stencil, a spooky coffin or even a witch with a moon behind her. If you would like to make your very own spiderweb doormat, take a peek at my complete step-by-step tutorial over on HGTV.

  1. Hi Melissa! Just want to tell you that you are heaven-sent! Two months ago my hubby and I moved to the countryside and our new {old} property came with 18 rescued chickens (ex battery hens). As a certified "city gal", you can just imagine how lost I am during the first few weeks. The love and affection I feel for "my girls" are more than enough to survive the challenges I had in the beginning. Some of my hens are very old and its gives me pure joy spoiling them with care and attention in the last years of their chicken lives after working so hard in their past lives. Your posts are very informative, practical and useful in my journey as rescued chickens keeper. Thank you so much for sharing! God bless you more!!!
