Spider Web Lights, retail $9.99 (www.homedepot.com)

This is a set of 105 miniature incandescent lights designed to look like a spider web when strung out correctly; there is even a large purple spider in the center.

It comes with eight suction cups; and is designed specifically to be hung on glass windows or glass doors with a width of no less than 5 feet (1.5 meters).

I was not able to find these on the Home Depot website, so the above link just leads to the website's front door.

Although these lights were meant to be used as a Halloween decoration, you can use them any time as long as you don't mind a big scary spider in a web with purple lights in the web.

The box has writing in English and a foreign language (French? Italian? Spanish?) on it; no instructional materials were found anywhere inside; no indication is is made as to what the suctions cups are for - but it's actually pretty intuitive what they're for.


To use these lights, place them on the floor first, untangle them, and create a spider web out of them. The large plastic spider should be in the center, and there should be eight longer segments of wire at the perimeter that appear to be cut and go nowhere...but these are where the suction cup hooks attach when you're ready.

Attach the suction cups to the glass door or window you want to hang these lights from. Moisten the bottoms of each suction cup just before you press it into place so that they'll stay in place.

Using the "loose" wires on the outer edge of the light set, string these through the hooks in the suction cups until your spider web takes shape.

Then, to borrow a phrase from a TV commercial for a popular brand of air freshener, "Plug it in, plug it in!!!"

Because this is a 120VAC powered product, this section can and will be skipped.

Since this is a set of holiday lights meant to be hung up and then not abused, I won't whap them against a steel rod or the concrete floor of a patio, try to drown them in a toilet bowl, stomp on them, run over them, or inflict other punishments upon them that might be inflicted upon regular flashlights. So this section will be rather short.

In fact, that photograph below may be it. If they get hung correctly on the patio door later in October 2007, I may attempt to get a photograph of the installation.

A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
