  18. Pam

    What a ‘blinged out’ little creature. I’m gonna have to make some – thanks to all of you for sharing your directions!

  19. Nadine Motes

    This spider takes the cake I am going to make several for my co – workers they will add some Halloween Fun to our department–we need some daily encouragement as we are working under stress since we had a flood in our Café in August and we are struggling along to get food to the patients in our hospital…Thanks again Angie for all you do to inspire all of us…

  20. Valerie Martin

    I just watched your video and I LOVE it! Great instructions too. I did leave a comment but I am not sure how ofter you check them so I will just copy and paste my YT comment…
    What an adorable project!
    You made a comment that you “messed up” an earlier one b/d your beads were too loose. I believe that if you use your round nose piers and make the loop on the end of each of the legs tighter…if that makes sense. So in other words instead of one twist of your wrist you will have more of a coil look. If that bothers you, you can snip of the extra coil on the outer end. ( protect your eyes) If you put your thumb over the cutting edge of the pliers as you cut, it will keep the metal wire boogers from flying all over the place.

  21. DebbieL

    I think I am quickly going to become addicted to making these spiders! They are adorable and seem pretty easy to make…thanks for sharing how to create them! 🙂

  50. Karren E. Olaveson

    I have watched your videos a lot, and am always impressed. I just watched your spider video and I was so excited because I have seen these spiders in specialty shops and craft fairs, and they always cost a small fortune. I thought it was difficult until I watched your video. Thank you so much. Now I can make my own and stop wanting to buy someone elses expensive crafts. Thank you again. I enjoy your expertise. Also, good luck with reaching your million. That is just incredible.

  51. I just looooove this spaider 🙂

  52. Missi Roeber

    It’s hard to imagine that a spider can be cute, but these are! Great tutorial, I will be off to get supplies this afternoon!

  53. Traci Davis

    Oh my goodness, these are darling. I’m not a beading fan but I definitely want to try some of these beauties. Thanks for sharing!

  54. Audrey Gail Cline

    These are just too cute…love them….and I hate spiders too..lol
    Have a great day and thanks for my granddaughters next hobby..lol

  57. Monique Bromley

    Congrats! You did a great job on the video! Enjoying reading everyone’s comments! I’ll send you a picture of my grapevine spider wreath when it’s finished.

  58. oh my word! these are adorable! I’m with you on starting another hobby, but this may have pushed me over the edge! LOVE it!

  59. Lisa Cool

    My fireplace mantel is full of spiders and fall foliage. I had a stamp class yesterday and all of the girls loved them too. I guess Monique and I have a new addiction!

  60. Belinda P

    Such a cute spider. Haven’t really seen these before but will definitely be trying these for Halloween. Thanks for the video, it was great.

  61. That spider is so cute! What a creative addition to Halloween besides candy 🙂

  62. Judy

    Do you know what size beads you used for the head and body? I bought beads at Michaels but I think they’re too small. thank you so much

  63. Donna Bradford

    These are fantastic! I wonder if it would be too difficult for first graders. Maybe if I use pipe cleaners and pony beads? I will have to work on it!

  64. Carla Malcom

    This is a super cute project! I can’t wait to get to the craft store so I can make one, who am I kidding many. :-))

  65. Liz Cuadra

    love this idea…there is a lady that makes these at a craft fair that I do every year…looks like she’ll have competition! thanks for sharing!

  66. Paula Passe

    I also need bead sizes. I looked at everything they had at Michaels and I had no luck.

    • Angie

      Hi Paula, I’m sorry …. the beads do not have a size on them. If you watch the video … you will see the packaging. They come in strands and if you ask someone that works there they can show you (it’s misleading because it looks like a bracelet hanging in the store…. that’s why I made sure I showed it in the video).

  67. Judy

    I know it is to late to win one but still have to tell you how much I enjoyed the video. Wish I had see it early because I do not know if I will have time to make them for my grandson school. Going out tomorrow to get the stuff.

  68. Lisa

    These are the bee’s knees! Love them, I want to put in everyone’s box for Christmas if I can find the story that goes with them for their Christmas trees! THANK YOU!
