This little project is really just about how awesome those little plastic spiders become when you hot glue them to a tiny magnet.
Got a metal door?
Or fridge? Or magnet board?
Or how about tucking them discreetly into an unexpected spot…like a nondescript industrial metal lampshade?
What I really love about this particular Halloween vignette is that, from across the room, it is very subtle. You see a few spider guys dangling down, and a bit of leg fringe, but you really have to go over and investigate to get the full effect.
I love a little deliberate infestation this time of year.
I chose a few different sized plastic spiders (including the ones that come as rings–those I just snipped off the ring parts), and simply hot-glued them to small round flexible craft magnets (like these).
For the danglers, I glued one magnet-less plastic spider to the end of a length of black embroidery thread, and then glued the remaining thread end to a spider with a magnet.
Once you place the one magnetic spider in its spot, the other hangs easily from it.
Halloween details. So fun.
