Step 3: Finishing Up

Glue colored wiggle eyes (ours are purple) onto the white eyes. Use a white paint pen to add a line for a mouth. Use a toothpick dipped in red paint to ad eyebrows, nostrils and fangs.

For the orange spider, dip the medium round applicator in purple paint and ad some spots to the cup. Repeat with red and green paint. Glue on 2 wiggle eyes (we used different sizes for fun!). Draw a smile on with a red Sharpie marker and add a tooth with white paint pen. use green marker to draw on a circle nose. Dip the tip of your finger in red and then in white paint. Mix it around a bit to make pink and dot on for cheeks (optional).

To add the legs, poke the shorter end of the bent chenille stem into the cup. Repeat so that there are 4 legs on each side. Bend the bottom of the long end of the chenille to form a foot.
