Martha Stewart Living, October 2006
- Attach 3 screw eyes to the top of your door's outer frame, spacing them a few inches apart.
- Attach a fourth screw eye (a removable adhesive plastic hook will also work) to the ceiling above the door frame; it should be about 3 feet from the door and in line with the hinges.
- Cut three 10-foot lengths of monofilament (5- to 10- pound weight).
- Using a needle, attach a spider to one end of each strand. Run opposite end through a screw eye in the door frame.
- Gather all three lengths, and thread them through ceiling hook.
- With the door almost closed, adjust the monofilament, so the spiders rest at different heights above kids' heads.
- Tie the monofilament to doorknob.
- Screw eyes
- Three 10-foot lengths of monofilament (5- to 10- pound weight)
- Plastic spiders
Feeling mischievous? Rig up rubber spiders to rise and fall before trick-or-treaters as you open the door.
