Spooky Spiders Halloween Embroidery for Cards
Published on October 3rd, 2019
These little spooky spiders can’t wait for you to stitch them into a paper embroidery card for Halloween!
I really wanted to make a paper embroidery pattern for Halloween, and I’m really happy with how this one turned out.
The stitching effect of the spider bodies looks really effective and the googly eyes add SO MUCH CUTENESS to their little faces!
Plus, this is a really easy pattern to prick and sew, so it’s perfect for those who are new to this card making technique.

How to make a paper embroidery card
- Print out the free card stitching pattern onto regular printed paper. The pattern can be downloaded using the buttons at the bottom of this post.
- Rough cut around the edge of the pattern and attach it to the front of a piece of hammered white card using masking tape.
- Place the card on top of a foam surface so that you will be able to prick through it. I use a piece of packing foam that I ‘rescued’ from an old parcel delivery.
- Use a pricking tool or similar and prick through all the dots on the pattern.
- Remove the masking tape and pattern and place to one side.
- Choose your embroidery thread colours and thread an embroidery needle with your first colour.
- Use a small piece of sticky tape to attach the end of the thread to the back of your card.
- Thread your needle through the holes in the card and stitch it, following the lines on the pattern template.
- When you get to the end of a thread, use another piece of sticky tape to attach it to the back of the card.
- When you have stitched the entire paper embroidery pattern you can cut the white hammered card to size and then stick it to a card blank.
- I first mounted mine on some orange marble effect card, then stuck that to an A5 black card blank.
- To finish the card, I added some googly eyes to the spiders to give them some character. Aren’t they CUTE?
I hope that you enjoy stitching this spooky spider Halloween card stitching pattern!
As patterns go, it’s a fairly simple one.
In fact, I think this would be a great Halloween card for older kids to make.
Or, you could be adventurous and not make it into a card at all, but stitch it on to a Halloween themed scrapbook page. Now THAT would be cool!
And you could absolutely team it up with these spider web scrapbook papers for even more spidery fun.
