Start out with a rectangular piece of paper such as A4 or Letter size copy paper or go with larger paper sizes (e.g. newspaper, butcher paper, etc.) for a bigger spider web. Avoid using cardstock or thick paper since these will be difficult to cut. I opted for a sheet of wax paper for a delicate, easy-to-cut, and slightly transluscent spider web.
A spider web wouldn't be complete without a spider! Make one following our instructions for making an easy paper spider.
