  1. Measure lace trim to go around the outside edge of the canvas and FabriTac™ in place. Let dry.
  2. Measure two strips of lace across the top and bottom of the front of the canvas and FabriTac™ in place. Let dry.
  3. Paint 4 x 4 canvas with black paint. Let dry.
  4. Paint 2 x 2 canvas with orange paint. Let dry.
  5. Using a "dry brush" add a small amount of orange paint. Brush off on a paper towel so there is very little paint on the brush. Lightly paint on top of the lace trims that have been painted black. This will accent the design.
  6. Accent orange canvas with alcohol ink on edges. Let dry.
  7. Stick strips of double-sided tape to the back edge of the small orange canvas. Peel off the outside paper.
  8. Using the orange embroidery thread, wrap back and forth going around the canvas to create a web.
  9. Cut a length of embroidery thread. Using a yarn needle, weave the thread in and out around the web beginning in the center. When you arrive at the outside edge, wrap around to the back and secure with a drop of hot glue.
  10. Hot glue the orange canvas at an angle in the left hand bottom corner.
  11. Using the Thickers™ lettering, spell out "eeek!" on the black canvas above the orange canvas. Accent with the orange Stickles™. Let dry.
  12. To make the spider, cut 4 – 1 ˝ inch pieces of fine black wire. Lay them down together, on a metal work surface.
  13. Using hot glue, apply a drop on the center top of the wires to resemble a spider. The glue may expand a bit when applied.
  14. Let the hot glue cool.
  15. Color glue with the black DecoColor™ paint pen. Let dry.
  16. Add very tiny white eyes with the DecoColor™ white paint pen. Let dry.
  17. Hot glue spider to the center of the web.
