31 Days of Halloween 2012 - Day 6: Easy Peasy Spider Ring might notice this is a few days late.  Weekends are tough for me to blog on.  I'll have to get on the ball and come up with something ahead of time so I'm not late next weekend.  But better late than never, right??  This post is super easy and really creepy.  I found these spiders at Michael's last year, and to the best of my knowledge, they still have them there.  I think they have different colors, too.  Seriously, these spiders really creep me out and make me not want to wear this ring, but it's pretty awesome, too - so I resist my squeamishness.  Here's all you need:

Ring blank (You can get these at most craft stores - check out this link to get an idea of what I'm talking about.)
E6000 glue, Krazy glue or hot glue and gun (if you want it really sturdy, use the E6000 or the Krazy glue.  The Krazy glue is pretty much instant dry, but the chemicals in it can sometimes mess up the item being glued if it's plastic.  E6000 is sturdy, but has to dry overnight.  I'm lazy, so I went with the hot glue.)
Plastic glitter spider

Step 1: Put some glue on the underside of your spider.
Step 2: Press spider onto the ring blank pad and hold tightly for a few seconds to secure.  Let cool if hot glue gun, let dry if other types of glue.
And you're done!

See, I told you this'd be easy ;)

Now, go out and wear that sucker everywhere and freak people out!
