What’s spookier than spiders all over your door?
Not much in my book, so I decided to turn it into Halloween decor!
It’s a pretty simple project.
I just took some plastic spider rings from the dollar store.
Cut off the ring part.
Then stuck some magnets on with hot glue.
The spider legs can get in the way of the magnet so you may need to tilt it upward and use a lot of hot glue, so that the magnet will fully stick to your metal surface. You don’t want the magnet to bend or ripple at all.
I started out using some advertisement magnets that come with the phone book. I have a white door so I just ripped off the colored tops to reveal the white paper underneath. I then cut them up and glued them to the spiders. I quickly discovered that I needed fairly large pieces of this kind of magnet for this to work…darn cheap magnets.
I then experimented with some stronger store bought magnet sheets so I could cut them smaller. Worked like a charm.
I ended up with about 40-45 spiders for a creepy crawly, spider invasion.
If you don’t have a metal door, put them on your fridge or any other metal appliance.
Bonus: They’re magnets so you can change them up daily if you want.
Have them attack the door.
Or come out in a trail.
Happy Halloween crafting!
