Bead Spiders

Materials: Different size beads, 26 gauge wire

This simple project started simply because I needed some spiders and did a search on my options.  Please be kind on my spiders, these are my first attempt!  :o)  Although after making a few of them, I've learned what I need to do differently next time, and yes, there will definitely be a next time.

I read over several tutorials but found that my favorite one was this one.  I will also warn you that in my search of tutorials and bead spiders, I found some pretty realistic ones!!  YUCK!  ;o)  I'm not much of a spider fan so I decided to keep my pretty.  How silly would I look to catch a realistic one out of the corner of my eye and then to run screaming?!?

The spider on my daughter's hand was made specifically for her.  I had to!!  She wouldn't leave my spiders alone and I needed them for a couple of projects.  For hers, I did end up using 20 gauge wire for the legs so that it would last longer.

Here's a couple of spiders hanging out at the projects I was working on!

Thanks for looking!!
