Neat link, Grapegrl, looks like Martha has the "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" spider thing going on. Looks really great. That'd be cheap and easy, but effective!

ps. and I like how she put them on the knob, so you'd have to touch them to get in.

I made a simple static spider by making a bottom frame and legs out of 1/2 inch PVC. This looked like a narrow rectangle composed mostly of T's on one end. I then glued a latex balloon on the end that didn't have any T's and covered it all with Great Stuff and then spray painted it all black. I think it was my first prop and it has been very durable and the kids love it.

We had a giant spider that burst out of it's web at TOT's - she rolled out on wobbly wheels and her wire and foam legs wiggled in a very convincing motion. I made grown men jump and loved it. Sadly I have no photos or video of her. After using her this way the first year we threw her on the roof for two more years. She was spooky up there too and after scaring folks for life in the past, just being up there alarmed folks who remembered her. Now we're ready for a new spider...and I love the spinning victim idea!

I purchased this 5 RPM Chauvet motor. The weight capacity is 25 lbs.

They also sell a 2 RPM Chauvet motor for the same price.

The motors have a 24-month warranty from Chauvet. They are quite powerful and very quiet.
Brilliant use of an fcg crank for the miscellaneous spiders! That's thinking out of the box. And thanks for the disco ball motor links, they will be perfect for my floating lantern project. Link And they're on sale too! You really delivered on this one ScareFX!
