All you need to make Spider Jars is hot glue, a fake spider (or a few), and a mason jar! I like to use quart jars and serve green punch in them for Halloween. Make the web on the outside with hot glue, and stick the spiders to the glue. Read on to see how!
One of the things I love about crafting for Halloween is how SIMPLE it is. Throw some black on it and it’s done, am I right? This mason jar craft is right up there; minimal supplies and minimal time, with totally fun results.
Spider Web Mason Jars
To get started on your Spider Web Mason Jars you will need three items:
- Hot Glue (and a glue gun!)
- Fake Spiders
- Mason Jars
DO NOT FORGET TO GET A PACK OF MASON JARS!

Simple enough, right?
When I created this craft I did it super basic. Plain jar, plain glue, and a black spider. I love the results which look classic and clear in my home. You could really get wild with this by using silver or black hot glue or prepainting your mason jar another color like black or red.
Additionally, you would easily add a glow stick in this at night to light up the web and spider! The possibilities are endless, so consider this a BASIC CRAFT to get started.
1) Start with making a tiny circle that will be the center of your web. Continue making circles with your hot glue all around the jar. Then start connecting lines. You don’t have to take too much care with the glue to be perfect (unless you want) as the weird strings from the glue make it a lot more spooky. Once you have your web to your liking, put your spider on your web, and you’re done!
2) The great thing about this easy mason jar craft is that hot glue peels OFF. If you hate your design, start over! After Halloween, simply peel it off and use the jar for a Christmas craft. Woot!
