Spider Celebrations

Be Kind to Spiders Week 2021: Web of Fortune DIY

I have mentioned before that many cultures perceive the spider as symbols of luck, wealth, protection and is often considered a weaver of destiny. It only felt right to sprinkle 2021 with a healthy dose of luck and I am bringing that to you with this simple little spinner wheel full of serendipitous spiders. Hopefully, the prosperity these arachnids propose bring a smile to your day.

This DIY project involves a free printable found in the supplies list. With minimal crafting skills to make, it is perfect for seeking luck from all throughout the year.

Supplies Needed:

  • Scissors, pencil & ruler OR a paper cutter
  • Picture frame
    • Keep it cheap with a frame from Dollar Tree
  • Spinner arrow
    • I found a pack of four in the school supplies at Dollar Tree
  • Glue
    • Depending on how patient you are, both Elmer’s glue OR a hot glue gun will work
  • Wheel Printable

Step One

step one cut web of fortune to size

Print out and cut your wheel to your desired size to fit your frame. For my example, I used the 4″ x 4″ size. If cutting with scissors, use a ruler to connect the crop lines with a pencil so you can cut evenly.

Please note that the printable has different size options to accommodate a variety of sizes. Follow the crop lines to help guide you in cutting the shape you want. You will find 4” x 4”, 4” x 6”, 5” x 7” and 8” x 10” in the download, but if you want a different one, just leave me a comment. I can make it happen.
