First, glue the two largest beads together hole to hole with the
glue gun. This is basically the body and head of the spider.
Cut four wires and string the smaller beads along them to make
the legs. Bend the end of the wire so the beads do not fall off.
Once you've added the beads to all four of the wires, twist them
together to create the legs.
hot glue them to the bottom of the larger beads so that it takes the shape and form of a spider.
using about ten inches of the metallic thread, place it through the two holes in the biggest beads (the body), and you're
ready to go!
now have a beautiful crystal bead spider ornament, just like the legend of the Christmas spider.
as many as you want and decorate your tree with them this year!
