    I want to attach some skeletons to the front of my house. I did a search and didn't come up with anything, but that could be user error on my part. Anyone have any ideas they could pass on would be great.

    For the last couple of years we used sticky back velcro to attach our Dollar Tree spiders to the house. The velcro is such a pain in the butt to get off. Anyone have any suggestions on how to attach spiders without having to peel the SUPER sticky velcro off.
