Materials needed: black crepe paper, white glue, scissors, googly eyes, hot glue gun, thick black chenille pipe cleaners, tiny treats and goodies.

Step 1: Begin wrapping your treats in with the black crepe paper. Once one treat is covered, add another. Keep adding until you have a potato-sized ‘spider’ shape.
Step 2. Glue and secure the end of the paper.
Step 3. Cut the chenille pipe cleaners into four pieces, about 4 inches long each.
Step 4: Apply hot glue to the bottom of the spider.
Step 5: Attach the four ‘legs.’ Press and hold firmly against the hot glue, being careful not to burn yourself!
Step 6: Apply to beady eyes to the front of the spider.
Step 7: Let your recipient unwrap and discover, and unwrap and discover, and unwrap…….you get the idea!
