I used this same little garlic/decor trick last year, and I wanted to do it again. However, this year I knew I needed to glue the spiders to the garlic to ensure they stayed where I wanted them. (Last year those lil' suckers all managed to slide to the bottom of the jar.)
What to do? Get non-toxic glue, a toothpick and a bunch of plastic spiders. A little dab of glue on the spider's body will adhere it to those papery outer layers of the garlic.
I added the spiders to the garlic and layered them carefully into an apothecary jar.
Because there are so many of those papery layers, the little dab of non-toxic glue won't affect the garlic at all. Once Halloween is over, I'll just pop those spiders right off and toss the garlic back into my garlic bin.
And at 3 for $1, this is a very, very cheap and easy way to add some Halloween decor to your kitchen.
