Along Came a Spider

by: Vanessa Gardiner

If this spider was the one who sat next to Miss Muffet, it's no wonder she ran away!

You can use a spare jumpring to attach the spider to the web, or stitch on with thread.

Use ribbon, wire or cord to hang the wall, in the window, off a lampshade, or use the top loop to attach to a spooky necklace!

To make the body of the spider, run the wire through the larger bead (body), and then twist, and then separate the ends and run each end through the hole of the smaller bead from opposite sides. Twist the wire back to the skinny part between the head and body, and wrap a few times and cut.

Make the legs in pairs, so that one piece of wire is the foot, leg with joints, and then the other leg with joints, foot, etc. Run the ends of the wire back up and twist to secure. Then wrap the leg pair, at the middle, around the skinny wire body of the spider. Bend into shape after.
