But...some people think it's fun to scare people with spiders on Halloween. Like, rigging spiders to rise and fall in front of poor little innocent trick or treaters when they knock on your door. Yep, as you open the door, the spiders go from their little hiding place near the floor, whipping up to the top of the door while terrifying
adults like me those cute kids who never saw the terror coming. Martha Stewart's website gives great instructions and a little diagram on how to rig this up. You just open the door and the contraption does all the work for you. To check out how to make this arachnid climb and descent go here.
Of course it would be really mean to dump little furry fake spiders into those trick or treat bags along with the candy you drop in the containers...that would scare the crap out of
me those kids when they reached in to grab a goodie once they got home!
As for that spider shown? Shudder. It's a mouse spider. Not nice to name something that ugly and scary after a mouse! Image Source
