    Put real spiderwebs on paper...when I was a kid, my mom would spray paint them gold first.

      Pretty but no thank you. A spider takes an age to spin it's web and its destructive to do this. It has to start all over again. Not a lesson I want to teach :(

      Great idea! My son and I tried to photograph a web recently and had a difficult time capturing it on camera because of the lighting. Next time we will use black paper:)

      Why would spray painting it destroy it?? I'm just wondering.

      It only takes 24 hours for a spider to spin a web.

      A spiders web would lose is capability if it was sprayed with paint. And even if it does 'only' take 24hrs it's destroyed that spiders work/home and 24hrs to them is probably not the same as 24hts to us. It's destructive IMHO
