The reason of the curse upon the Lady of Shalott is never mentioned. In my opinion, I think she creates the curse because she is always weaving "a magic web with colours gay". This makes me think of how a spider makes a colourful web to lure the fly so that the fly will be trapped yet in the end it is the Lady of Shalott who is trapped in her web and she dies.
