Putting it Together:
Cut the 2 chenille stems in half. Twist together all four stems in the center. Bend stems to look like legs. Glue to spider.
Place a small amount of tissue paper into the box. I used a bakery box because I felt it kept more in tune with the Trick or Treat theme of this project.
Cut a small amount of eyelash yarn and attach to the center of the spider. Attach other end to the lid of the box. Close lid.
Now offer someone you know a little Halloween treat and watch their reaction when they open the box and discover a trick instead.
