5 DIY Wire Wrapped Jewelry Ideas For Halloween

How To Create A Spider Using Beads And Soft Flex Craft Wire

We hope you are not an arachnophobe. James filmed a fun Halloween flavored wire wrapping project featuring the cutest Craft Wire spider we have ever seen. Make sure you follow his series for all of the fun,  Conversations in Wire. He uploads a new episode every other Thursday. His episodes are not live, but if you catch him when the episode is uploaded, he is on chat and ready to answer any questions about Soft Flex Craft Wire and wire wrapping. 

Soft Flex Craft Wire Spider and Web by James Browning

James showed us how to create a fun little spider with just two beads and Soft Flex Craft Wire. He then showed us how to design an accompanying web. It was a fun watch. James made some mistakes in this video - his wire length was too short for his little spider legs, but rather than get frustrated - which most of us would probably be guilty of, James powered through his oopsie and made a delightful piece of art.
