Eyes (make 2)
With B, ch 3. Join with sl st in first ch.
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Using tail, sew eyes to Skull Front. With B, embroider straight st mouth and nose on Skull Front.
With yarn tail, sew Skull Back to Skull Front, leaving a small section at lower edge unsewn.
Weave in ends.
Cut a skewer to about 4-1/2" long. Apply a small amount of glue to cut end of skewer, then insert skewer into lower edge of Skull between Front and Back, at unsewn section.

Note:
The second group of legs is worked from the WS. We found that the legs fell into a better position when worked this way. Turn Front of Spider over, so that you can work on the WS.
From WS of Spider, join B with a sl st 2 sts away from first leg. Rep from * of First Group of Legs.
