How to make Spider Pendants for Halloween


Materials Needed

– black crystal
– red coral (you can use any red bead, just keep in mind it should be bigger than the black one)
– 2 little beads (seed beads)
– one piece of wire (about 3 cm)
– 3 pieces of wire (about 4.5 cm)
– chain
– round nose pliers

NOTE: Wire should be neither too soft nor too hard.


Step 1

Take the small piece of wire…

…and begin making a loop on one end.

Put the 2 seed beads on it…

… and close the loop. These will be the eyes.


Step 2

Add the black crystal…

… and the red coral bead.

Using the pliers make another loop on the other end.

Take care to let about 5mm between the black bead and the red one.


Step 3

Take the 3 pieces of wire…

… and bend them in half, like this.

Continue to press on the ends until it looks like this.

Put the spider body through it, like this…

… and tighten the knot.

Press on the ends again…

… and make another knot, like this.

NOTE: It is not actually a knot. You just wrap the 3 wire around the spider body 2 times.


Step 4

Separate spider legs.

Fold down the first leg almost half (smallest side towards the body)…

… and make a little loop on the end, using the pliers.

Repeat for all the legs…

… and your spider is ready.

Add a chain to it (you can put it through the head – between the eyes) and is ready to be worn.

Ok, how awesome is this Spider Pendant?  It is perfect for the Halloween season…. or really any time of year.  It is that beautiful to wear… wear it all year long.
