They could be nifty suspended within some of that "web" type material that folks use to decorate their homes in mid-autumnl. Sure would be a life-like addition to a humongous (fake) spider web! Maybe one could even be affixed to a chain or string of beads as a pendant, too?

p.s. Could make neat (possible a bit biggish, though) 3-D wine glass charms! Hard to forget which glass is yours if there is a brown spider crawling up the stem of it!

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.

p.s. Thank hubby for his opinion and then use whatever avatar you like most Wink
Exactly!


I don't know what I'll do with them.  I'm just making them.  I'll have 32 spiders when I finish up the beads I have.
I might list some on Etsy. 

Last year, my niece and I made one for everyone we know to put on their Christmas tree.  If you know the legend of the Christmas spider, you simply "must" have a spider on your tree.  It was nice of you to go through all the work of the tutorial...there are so many out on the net you could have saved yourself a ton of time photographing and uploading.  But great job on it!!!

Have fun with them.

Eeeee! I LOVE that lamp! Must must must make!

I posted on the craft challenge thread a few seconds ago - then realized that there's a separate thread for the tutorial. eep! Ah well, still an awesome set of spiders (looks like you're ready to take over a small country with your army of arachnids there, I love it!) Would you mind if I posted a couple of pics of my version of the spider in this thread?

Weee!

That pic gives a sense of how big the spiders came out. As you can see they vary a bit from yours - unlike yours, mine have no antenna/pincers (there's probably a specific term that arachnophiles are wincing at me not using. Ah well - feel free to correct me!) I used headpins (head first, so that if someone chose to 'hang' them, they'd hang head down) put the head and body bead on, wrapped the legs on, then put the bugle and seed beads on the wires and curled the ends. Some of the spiders show this assembly order entirely too clearly as some didn't get beads as far back to the body as I would have liked. Ooops!
The clear spider showed up really well in photos - it looks like some cave-spider that should glow in the dark or some such. The black and red one just looks cool.

I went nuts with the new photobucket album and you can see all the variations I did here,  but I didn't want to clog up the thread with too many. Hope you like 'em!
