Frame your jumping spiders
These are the cutest spiders so why not frame them. So simple to do and it is such a fanatic keepsake. You can make a backdrop inside the frame by painting paper and cutting it into strips as shown in the picture. or you could use cotton balls and spread out and glue on a paper and then glue your spider on top of that. These frames are open but if you wish to keep the glass on the top that would work as well as keeping them safe all year until next Halloween. Then you can bring out the cutest spiders year after year.
Are jumping spiders good pets?
Jumping spiders are simple to find and inexpensive to keep for your pets. Once these species know you they want to talk with you. There are no food demands for them either. Give them flies or small crickets every few days and they’ll be pleased. Find more information about what to care for jumping spiders and more Spiders find more watch this video.
