DIY Spider Door

We had so much fun making these spiders after a bad spider experience we had involving a wolf spider and many, many, did I mention many babies.

My daughters saw a huge spider, I went to kill it with a shoe.  As soon as I hit it all the babies went flying everywhere, it was like breaking open a pinata.  My girls started screaming and totally freaking out, crying.  My instincts took over and i smash as fast as I can screaming as well.  

Ya, it was pretty scary and super funny now.

So we just bought a bag of simple spider rings.  They come in many colors, and even glow in the dark.  Just make sure they are the hard plastic.  We tried to make some with the softer plastic cock roaches and the magnets just fell off.

Try to find ones that have a fatter body like the picture on top.
The bottom one will work but its harder to hide the magnet.

Simply cut off the ring portion on the bottom.
 We used a roll of magnet tape, and simply cut to size.
Hot glue the magnet to the bottom of the spider.

You could even put them on curtains if the magnet is strong enough, just place another magnet or light piece of metal on the other side.

Just think of all the fun you can have with these.  
You could even pull the out for April Fool's Day!
