Spiderweb Costume: Surround yourself in a shawl of spiders. Weave your web with a roll of white or ivory cheesecloth. Unroll the cheesecloth and spread it out, pulling apart and snipping the ends to achieve the desired distressed appearance. Secure plastic spiders, by applying a small dab of hot glue to each, and pressing onto cheesecloth. -MarthaStewart.com
