Use these printed spider boxes as fun dice shakers or to store small game pieces. To give them as a gift, tuck a piece or two of Halloween candy inside.

- Squeeze out a small amount of paint onto a disposable plate. For the spider body, dip the pom-pom into the paint and test print it onto scrap paper. When pleased with the results, print directly onto box and lid. Let the paint dry.
- Use the paint pen to draw eight legs from the printed body. To make a foot, dip the cotton swab into the paint and test print it. Print a round foot at the end of each leg. Let the paint dry.
- In a well-ventilated work area, spray a coat of sealer over the box. Let dry. Hot-glue two wiggly eyes onto the base of each printed body. Let the glue dry. Fill the box with small toys or candies.
