Step 1: Punch HolesClick thumbnail to view full-size
Punch holes in opposite sides.
Imagine your plate is a clock and start with one at 12 o'clock and another at 6 o'clock.
Do this with 3 and 9....
...2 and 5 etc.
Cut some yarn
Cut about 6 or 8 strands of yarn that are a couple inches wider than the plate.
They need to be a little wider so you can tie them off.
You will also need a longer length of yarn about two feet long.

The base of your web
Take one of the shorter pieces of yarn and tie the end off in the hole.
Pull it tight and then tie it off in the hole opposite.
Repeat with each hole you punched earlier. You will have to start looping the yarn where the center intersects.
Just tie one end, pull it across and loop it around. Pull tight and tie off the other end.d
Are the instructions easy to follow?

Tie the longer string around the center where the cross strings intersect.
Then start wrapping it around in a circular pattern. Wrap it around each strand and then move to the next one in a clockwise direction.
