Decorating your refrigerator door in a fun and exciting way this Halloween season doesn't have to be overly difficult. Consider creating the illusion that the door is covered in creepy crawly spiders. Use the following guide to learn how to transform your refrigerator door in just minutes.
Supplies You'll Need
- Small Peel and Stick Magnets
- A Few Bags of Plastic Spider Rings
- Black Contact Paper
Cut the Contact Paper
Cut the contact paper into thin strips. You want to be sure that the strips are thin, but not so thin that they cannot be easily seen when you attach them to the door. Cut numerous strips to create the illusion of a spider's web.
Attach the Contact Paper
Peel the paper backing off of the back of a piece of contact paper. Start at the center of the door with the end of the strip of contact paper and extend it toward the edge of the door. Repeat the process until you create a star on the door. Connect each strip of contact paper with the strip next to it using another piece of contact paper. Repeat the process until you create the illusion of a spider's web.
Prepare the Spiders
Use the scissors to cut off the ring portion of each of the spiders. This will create a flat surface on the back of the spiders. Peel the magnets from the paper they are attached to and attach the magnets to the back of each spider.
Position the Spiders
The magnets on the back of the spiders will attach to the door wherever you position them. This allows you to place numerous spiders on the door to make it look as though your door is being taken over by the creepy crawly creatures. To create a unique look, you may want to place numerous spiders in one corner of the door from a company like Shore TV and Appliance and then have additional spiders spread out a little bit further from that corner. It will look as though the spiders are coming from the inside of the refrigerator.
When Halloween is over, pull the spiders from the door and store them in a sealable sandwich bag. This allows you to keep the spiders together so that you can use them year after year. The magnets should not lose their magnetic properties, if you store the spiders in a temperate location. If they are stored in a hot area, the glue on the back of the magnets will melt and they will come loose from the spiders.
