Halloween is a time where things that are spooky, creepy and scary are celebrated. Work in a bit of your own ghoulish magic with a Halloween magic trick. Many magic tricks can be adapted to correspond to the Halloween season. For example, replace elements of the trick with Halloween imagery and icons. Instead of a normal coin, for instance, use a pirate or goblin coin.

  1. 1

    Adhere the top of a piece of thread to the top of magic wand using a clear tape. Hold the wand in your hand.

  2. 2

    Tie the other end of the thread to your belt loop. The length of the thread will vary based on your body size. When your arm is out straight in front of you, the thread should be pulled tight, however, not tight enough to dislodge the thread or snap it, according to

  3. 3

    Let the thread go slack by holding it close to your body and slide a black spider ring over the top of the wand and let it fall until it hits where you are holding the wand. The spider ring should be over both the wand and the thread, pulling the thread down to where you are holding it as well.

  4. 4

    Turn the spider ring so the spider it is facing out, where the audience can see it.

  5. 5

    Slowly extend and raise your arm, wand in hand, which will cause the spider ring to rise as well. Since the thread will be invisible from several feet away it will appear that the spider is crawling up the wand.

  6. 6

    Carefully lower your arm to make the spider crawl back down.
