Bead Spider Craft

5 minute spider craft

Yippee! It is another awesome week of Craft Lightning! Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and I are getting together for another week of fast crafting… this time we’re getting ready for Halloween with lots of quick crafts. You’ll be ready for the spookiest holiday of the year in just a little time!

Last week I shared a fun spider web in an embroidery hoop while doing a video craft… and I promised I’d share with you a spider to go in it. This bead spider can be made in just 5 minutes. Yes, incredibly easy to make!

Large Beads (they should have a large hole)
Googly Eyes
Black Pipe Cleaner
Hot Glue (optional)


Cut the pipe cleaner into quarters.

Thread two of the quarters through the hole. The hole should be nice and big to fit two pipe cleaners through.
