Learn how to make a DIY spiderweb table topper with a free hexagon table topper quilt pattern. This is a really fun Halloween sewing project for decorating.
I like Halloween decorations that are cute and only a little spooky. Decorate a table with this DIY Spiderweb table topper that’s cute and spooky. Choose a fun Halloween fabric that works as the background of a white spiderweb.
This free hexagon table topper works great as a spiderweb, but it can be used for any quilted hexagon table topper. I can’t wait to make hexagon table toppers for other holidays.
What fabric should I use?
The best fabric to use for this project is quilting cotton. Use quilting cotton in black and white to make a spiderweb look. Use white bias binding for all the details. Use a fun Halloween print fabric for the backing.
Should I prewash my fabric?
Since the spiderweb table topper is quilted you should not prewash the fabric. You want the fabric to crinkle up when you wash it just like a quilt.
What is a PDF sewing pattern?
A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.
I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!
How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?
Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.

DIY Spiderweb Table Topper
- 2/3 yard of black fabric
- 2/3 yard of white fabric

Cut the white fabric into 1 inch strips.
Cut the black fabric into 3 inch strips.
Sew the strips together switching between black and white.
Press the seam allowances away from the white strips.
Use the pattern to cut out 6 triangles. (I bought the wrong amount of fabric, so I had to piece some of my triangles together.)
Place all the 6 triangles in a circle.
Sew two triangles together but stop 3/8 inch from the point. Sew another two triangles together but stop 3/8 inch from the point. Sew the last two triangles together stopping 3/8 inch from the point. Press the seams open.
Sew the three pieces together stopping 3/8 inch from the point. Press the seams open.
Layer the backing right side down, then the batting or fusible fleece, then the top with right side up.
Pin the single fold bias tape over the seams and sew each side of the bias tape. This creates the straight lines of the spiderweb.
Quilt the layers together. I found the best way was to start in the middle and spiral out until I got to the outer edge.
Trim the backing and batting to the same shape as the hexagon top.
Finish the edges with double fold bias tape. Be careful around the corners.
