I love decorating for Fall, but I try to throw a few easy Halloween decorations in for October. When I saw this pin I knew I wanted to try it. I did mine with different supplies but I basically got the same results.

 I found a bag of 75 spiders in the Halloween section at Target for $3 and a roll of magnet tape with the adhesive tape on the back at Joann for $3 (with 50% off coupon). Since the magnets had an adhesive back all I had to do is cut it up and stick the spiders on.

Here is a close up on my little creatures. When I opened the door to let the dog out this morning Maddie saw them and started screaming so I'd say they worked.

Here is a closeup of the back. It depends on how strong your magnet is for whether ir not it will show from the front. I think it is a fun little addition to our decorations.

I even set aside a few to have fun at work. Working with all guys I'm usually the one getting picked on so maybe this will be a little payback. :)

  3. Easy and cheap...perfect Halloween project :) I've now got to go buy a bag of spiders!

  4. How fun! I wish I had a metal front door for this.

    1. You could always put them on kitchen appliances. I would have but mine are all black.

  5. Those would certainly scare a few trick-or-treaters! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

  6. This is SO fun! I know what I'm doing this weekend! LOVE it!
