For this project you will need:
- Wire Snowflake Form
- Seed Beads and Bugle Beads
- Misc beads for center
- 26 Gauge Wire
- Needlenose pliers
I started with about a two feet of the 26 gauge wire and wrapped the starting end around one of the beaded wire spokes enough to secure it. Work from the middle out and string enough bugle beads to get to the next spoke. Wrap that spoke with wire, string more bugle beads. Rinse. Later. Repeat until you’ve gone around the whole thing. Eyeball where you want the next row of your web to be and repeat the process two more times as shown.
I finished my web with a bow of scrap grosgrain ribbon I saved from a package of curtains. Left it all wrinkly because of the creepy factor.
But what’s a web without a spider? The basic construction is two beads and some wire. There are tutorials on Pinterest and You Tube you can follow to get the basic construction. I decided not to bead my legs because I liked the wire legs plain.
I hung mine from our dining room light fixture ( "Hi welcome to dinner don’t mind the spider hanging above you”) using some jute twine.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky
Mysterious and spooky
They're altogether ooky
