How to make Iron-On Spider Web Hoop Art with Cricut With FREE SVG
All you need to get started is listed below!
- Spider Web SVG (download)
- Embroidery Hoop, 10” diameter
- 100% cotton woven fabric
- Cricut Maker
- Everyday Iron-On Vinyl, Black
- Cricut Standard Grip Mat
- Weeding Tool

Instructions for Iron-On Spider Web Hoop Art with Cricut
- With a pencil, trace the outside of the embroidery hoop on the fabric.
- Leave about 2” around the pencil line and cut out a circle shape.
Preparing the Image:
- Open Cricut Design Space.
- Click on the “+” sign to start a new project, opening up a blank canvas.
- Click on the Upload button from the toolbar to insert the Spider Web SVG file onto the canvas.
- Maintain the size at 10.125” across or adjust by highlighting the image and clicking on the size box in the top toolbar.
Cutting the Iron-On Vinyl:
- Select “Make It” in the upper right corner to proceed with cutting.
- Click the “Mirror” toggle button to on. This is necessary for ALL iron-on vinyl cuts.
- Cut the Everyday Iron-On Vinyl width to fit on the standard grip mat. Press continue.
- Choose Everyday Iron-On Vinyl from the list of options in the drop-down menu.
- Place the Iron-On vinyl directly onto the standard grip mat with the SHINY SIDE DOWN.
- Following the instructions prompted on the screen, cut out the vinyl.
Preparing the Cut Image:
- Remove the Everyday Iron-On Vinyl from the mat.
- Cut around the image and put aside the leftover vinyl for another project.
- Using a weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl leaving only the spider web image.
Applying the Image with the Cricut EasyPress 2:
- Position the mat or a towel on a flat surface.
- Set the temperature and time on the machine following the chart for the type of vinyl and material being used or use this EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide (https://home.cricut.com/easypress-heat-settings-guide).
- For a 100% Cotton tea towel and Everyday Iron-On Vinyl, set the EasyPress 2 to 315F.
- Preheat the fabric (the cut circle shape) for 5 seconds. This will prep the fabric for the vinyl, removing all excess moisture as well as help to remove any creases and wrinkles from the fabric.
- Place the cut image on the fabric with the shiny side up.
- Press the image onto the fabric for 30 seconds with light pressure. If the entire image doesn’t fit under the EasyPress, then move the EasyPress over and heat press the image a second time.
- Turn the fabric upside down and apply heat for another 15 seconds.
- Peel the plastic part of the vinyl off carefully once it cools and discard.
- Make sure you do not place an iron or the EasyPress directly over the vinyl without the protective plastic cover.
Assembling the Hoop Art
- Insert the fabric into the embroidery hoop, after centering so that all vinyl edges are sandwiched inside the hoop, tighten the screw.
- Trim away the excess fabric and hang to enjoy!
