Lion Brand DIY Yarn

Lion Brand provided all the yarn for this crochet along. Their DIY yarn comes in small balls, which is just perfect for the small amounts needed for each magnet. The spider fridge magnet is all black, with a tiny amount of white for the eyes.

If you’re not able to get this yarn or the colors you need, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice or Basic Stitch are also good options. You can also substitute embroidery thread for the white yarns.

Xyron Glue Gun

The easiest way to attach your magnet to your crochet is with hot glue. For my magnets, I’m using this mini hot glue gun that Xyron gave me to try out.

Xyron Mini Hot Glue Gun

I used it on this spider fridge magnet and on the previous magnets as well. I’ve been very happy with it. It heats up quickly and produced a nice steady bead of glue. Watch it in action in the tutorial video below!
