Easy-to-Make Magnetic Spiders

Rearrange these creepy crawlies over and over all month long.

By: Delia Randall

Materials Needed:

  • 1-2 bags of plastic spiders (I used spider rings)
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • magnetic strips

Attach Spiders to Magnetic Strip

Start by cutting your magnetic strips to size: just larger than the base of the spider but smaller than the span of its legs. (If you’re using rings, cut off the ring so you're left with plain spiders.) The spider legs can get in the way of the magnet; you may need to tilt it upward and use a lot of hot glue so the magnet will fully stick to the metal surface. You don't want the magnet to bend or ripple at all.

Arrange in a Spooky Fashion

If you don't have a magnetic door, use your fridge, stove or any other metal surface!
