Learn how you can easily transform a wall in your home making my DIY Paper Spider Wall .
I love to cut paper using my Cricut to make a statement wall! I cut paper fish for my son’s room and paper butterflies for my daughters room. Years ago, I received a package of large paper spiders. I’ve used them year after year.
I finally decided to make paper spiders of all sizes to create a creepy crawly wall. We kind of have a theme this year outside of our house which includes a giant spider web and a ton of spiders. I wanted to have the theme run into our house so I created this statement wall of spiders running up the wall. It’s one of the first things my guest will see when they walk in.
Supplies to create a DIY Paper Spider Wall
- Cricut Maker
- Spider file located in Cricut Design Space®
- Cricut Light Grip Mat
- 10 sheets of Cricut Black Kraft Board
- 3-dimensional dot stickers
Once you’ve logged into Cricut Design Space and grabbed the spider file you’ll want to cut the spiders. Load your machine with Cricut Black Kraft Board on a Light Grip Mat. Then let your Cricut Maker do the work!
Note: You can cut these using a Cricut Explore Air 2. You do not need any fancy blades. The basic blade that comes with the machine is what is needed for this project.
Carefully, remove the paper spiders from the mat.
PRO TIP: I find that if you bend the mat they remove without any curling.
Here is what my stacks of spiders looked like.
Next, start adding the 3-dimensional dot stickers to the backs of the spiders. I used a scissor to cut some of the dot stickers in half for the smaller spiders.
Now, it’s time to decorate!
Here is a close up of how they turned out. I draped one around my light switch to work it into the wall pattern.
To give extra dimension and creepiness I wrapped the spiders around the wall.
Here is another up close of the paper spiders.
I absolutely love how this wall turned out. It took me about a half hour from start to finish and cost me only time since I had the materials on hand!
