I had been planning on making a beaded spider headband even before I saw a cute tutorial over at Tatertots and Jello. I saw a similar headband selling in a local store for $20 but thanks to the generous folks at Artbeads.com, I made mine for next to nothing! So here’s how I made my creepy crawly headwear….
I used some black plastic beads I had on hand along with some Swarovski crystal beads and a large Swarovski rhinestone from Artbeads.com. You’ll also need a headband, some jewelry wire, needle nose pliers, a small piece of felt, and hot glue (not pictured).
Hot glue your center crystal on top of the wire and the felt. Now just start stringing your beads on the wire in any pattern you choose. After stringing the beads on each leg, use the needle nose pliers to curl the wire into a loop to secure the beads.
Hot glue the spider onto your headband.
Trim another piece of felt and glue it on the underside of the headband.
Crimp and arrange your little spider legs and enjoy!
