Spooky Seed Bead Spider

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating: 0 Stars

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!

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 2 bugle beads, a green seed bead, and repeat twice. 
Do the same 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 shamballa 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.
