Spooky Seed Bead Spider

Difficulty: Beginner


Learn how to make this Spooky Seed Bead Spider using Toho bugle beads, a Swarovski crystal bicone and a shimmering black round shamballa fashion bead. This design is great for Halloween!

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Thread a bicone bead onto a headpin.

Step 2

Cut 4 lengths of wire measuring approx. 5".
Wrap the centre around the headpin below the bicone bead to create two legs on either side of the headpin.
Thread on your beads onto the legs.
Repeat for the other leg. 
At the end of each leg, create a tight, small loop to keep the beads in place.
Bend the wires to look like legs.

Step 3

Repeat this process to create 8 legs in total.
Squash the wrapped wires together at the centre of the headpin so that the wrapped wires create a body.
Thread on your 10mm bead and create a loop at the other end to secure the bead tightly to the bead.

Step 4

When you are happy that your spiders body is compact enough, add drops of glue to the wrapped wires around the headpins to secure them in place.
