Make Spider Webs for Halloween

Make Spider Webs

Who needs to make spider webs? At our house we tend to have the real thing on display. We’re a spider-friendly household. Mostly they hide in the shadows, but on occasion we can’t help but notice and appreciate an eight-legged friend.

Shortly before Halloween in October 2012, a spider took up residence in the kitchen garden window. Not content to merely hang out in a corner like the other spiders, she set up camp inside a basket of vegetable brushes. After a few days we welcomed her to our menagerie and named her “Charlotte.” In no time at all a dozen flies found themselves ensnared in elaborate webs that were attended to each night as the rest of the household slept.

Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte doubled in size after we first spotted her, measuring nearly an inch from top to bottom at her peak. She was a bit shy and preferred to hang close to her safe spot inside the small willow basket. Charlotte’s webs were quite elaborate, though we failed to discover any words among them, as was the case with her namesake in the popular children’s book. It was a sad day when Charlotte left us for good. We missed seeing her and the beautiful webs she created and maintained.
