Spider Web String Art

 My first attempt at String Art...I am quite certain that there is a technique to it, but sometimes I just go with it!  I was looking at a spider web the other day and it reminded me about the string/wire art that my mom had in the house when I was little.
This would be a fun project to do with your kids!
 Here is a side view of it.  I just used items that I had on hand to do this project!   Goodwill $1 frame, foam core, black burlap, tiny pins, orange embroidery floss and ribbon. 
 I just googled "spider web" and printed off this web for inspiration.
 A random tag that I made from scraps of this and that to attach to my tall silver candlestick from IKEA.  I wish that I bought more of them!
Yesterday I had a spray painting party in my garage.  I think my neighbors think I like the smell of spray paint or something because they always see me working on these projects!
All of these items are from Goodwill...
The large apple bushels are now black and on either side of my front door waiting for something to be put inside.
The lamp is now black and I am going to put it in Bill's new office at work
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy first of October!!
