After making my simple wire spiders (tutorial HERE), I decided it would be fun to make them a little more fancy, so I got out some old jewelry, buttons and broaches. Ring toppers work well also.
The technique is the same for the jeweled spiders as it is of the wire spiders. The only difference is you add a little piece of wire for the head jewel or button to rest on.
After placing the legs in the glue, you can also add a button or a jewel. for the body and head. You will probably need a little more glue.
You can also wait until the glue cools, and add the jewel on the other side by adding more glue, if you want the lower body to be rounded instead of flat.
I wanted to use this broach, but also wanted to be able to use it in the future, so I glued the head piece on, but pinned the body over the glue.
Look how cute it sits on a plate for Halloween dinner!
I drew some inspiration from HERE.
I hope you'll have as much fun with these as I did!
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
