It is called a spider in a box for a very good reason:)

Just in time for Tricks or Treats!

The spider is attached to the underside of the lid to the box so when you open it, the spider "jumps" at you.

Happy Halloween!
MATERIALS:
Small amount of Lion Fun Fur
Eyelash yarn in Black, size F
crochet hook, 2 black chenille
stems, craft glue, a small box and
some tissue paper.
SPIDER:
With Eyelash yarn and F hook
ch-3, sl st to form a ring.
RND 1: Ch-1, work 12 hdc in ring,
sl st top beg hdc, ch-1, turn. (12
sts)
RND 2-3: (2 hdc next st, hdc next
st) around, sl st top beg hdc,
ch-1, turn. (18 sts)(27 sts)
RND 4-6: Hdc ea st around, sl st
top beg hdc, ch-1, turn.
RND 7-9: (Hdc dec next 2 sts, hdc
next st) around, sl st top beg
hdc, ch-1, turn. (18 sts)(12
sts)(8 sts) Spider is not stuffed.
Rnd 10: (Hdc dec next 2 sts)
around, sl st top beg hdc, fasten
off. (4 sts)
Cut the 2 chenille stems in
half so you
have 4. Twist
together in
the center and
bend stems to look like legs.
Glue to bottom of spider.
Place some tissue in
your box. I used a
bakery box. I
though it kept more with the idea
of Trick or Treat!
Cut a small bit of eyelash
yarn. Attach this to the center
of the spider and the other end to
the top of the box.
Then give it to
A friend and watch
the fun!
