Last night we made some beaded spiders following this tutorial by Craftily Ever After. The only thing we did differently was to use a thinner wire, because we already had it on hand. In the end I wish I had purchased the thicker wire too because our spiders legs bend really easily. Still they can stand without a problem, and B has had lots of fun making his spiders crawl around his paper mache castle.
We even turned one into a spider necklace! I think I might make a new one (with the thicker wire) for the necklace because this one’s legs get a bit bent up during normal wear :) Super fun though, and wasn’t too hard for B either.
K did not make any, he has been pretty absorbed this week in some new library books he picked up this week, but B has been a crafty fool lately. I’ll post some more of his projects soon!
