  2. I found it on clearance at orientaltrading.com (right after Halloween!), so I'm not sure if they still carry it.

  6. Did you use a pattern for the spiderweb placemats? Or would you share some tips on how you made the placemats and the wreath?

    1. The spiderweb placemats are super easy to make--I just took red construction paper and drew on the spiderwebs with a thick black permanent marker. I cut small segments off each edge to make it less rectangular.

      The wreath is also super easy--I took cupcake liners in red and blue and scrunched them up and hot glued them to a styrofoam wreath, then I added the spiderman face and letters that I cut on my electronic cutter.

    1. I made the white frame with black spider webs and Spiderman's face.

      The wooden frame with Spiderman's face painted on with the word "Sohan", I purchased on Etsy.

    1. The spiderman is a wall decal that I bought online. I mounted it on foam board and cut around it to make it firm enough to hang. Pottery barn kids carries wall decals as well as many vendors online.
