1. Make the pattern

Use the glitter paper as the base of your Halloween hair accessory. I’m using a purple one. Carefully trace the delicate spider web coaster onto the glitter paper with the pen.

First pattern cut out

Cut out the first pattern and use it as a template to make a second spider web. Make sure the paper webs mirror each other. Glue the two spider web papers to each other.

Don’t put too much glue or it will ooze out and that’s not a good look. Trim their edges if they’re not even. Because the underside of the glitter papers is white, the white may show through at the edges. If the white bothers you, use a black marker like a Sharpie or the pen to darken it.

Placing the spider web on top

Place the spider web on top.

Applying glue

Apply the glue sparingly in the center and the edges.

Adding stickers

Then peel off the sticker backs (if your witches hats, bats, or mummies have a sticker back) or glue and apply to the spider web. Apply as many stickers as you like! It’s time to be creative.

Attaching a hair pin

2. Attach it to the hair pin

Lay your spider web with the accessories side down. Before gluing your fascinator to the hairpin, insert your finger into the bobby pin to make sure you don’t glue the bobby pin shut. Gently apply a tiny dollop of glue and let the fascinator set until the glue dries.
