This spiderweb bowl is very easy to make. All you need is a bowl and hot glue. Painting it is optional. I love how sturdy it is. It holds my Halloween treats just fine!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 bowl


  • 1 glass bowl
  • hot glue gun with glue
  • paint and paintbrush or spraypaint (optional)


  1. Wipe off the outside of your glass bowl. If it's got uneven areas or divots, lightly grease it with a piece of paper towel dipped in some cooking oil. This will keep your glue bowl from sticking to it.

  3. Flip your bowl upside down and fill in a circle of hot glue on top. Draw at least 3 rings of glue around it, going down the bowl.
  4. Draw several lines going down the rings, passing the last ring a bit.
  5. Connect the lines at the bottom by drawing upside down Us between the lines.
  6. The hot glue will dry very quickly. Lodge your nail or something thin between the glue and the bowl to start peeling it off.

  8. It will easily flip inside out and pop right off the bowl.
  9. Turn it back outside in. Paint both sides, if desired.
  10. Let dry for a couple hours before filling.
