I designed this beaded Halloween decoration after I had started thinking about beaded Christmas baubles. I had been commissioned to create a Christmas bauble design and it occurred to me, why are beaded baubles only used at Christmas? So, I decided it was time to change that!
I designed a Beaded Halloween decoration based on a black bauble base. I could envisage a spider’s web draped over a black bauble. So, I designed this using basic stringing and netting techniques.
I realised that my web then needed a spider to sit on it! Traditionally spiders are black, but I felt this wouldn’t show up too well on the bauble. So, I’ve created a pale silvery-blue spider. Of course, you can personalise your beaded Halloween decoration simply by changing the colour of the spider.
Information about the Beaded Halloween Decoration Pattern
The pattern for this beaded Halloween decoration includes step-by-step written instructions. These are accompanied by diagrams to show thread paths. I have also included photos to show the details of the project.
This is made with basic stringing and netting, plus peyote stitch. I would recommend this pattern for intermediate level beaders. However, if you are just beginning, I recommend you give this a try. If you want to find out more about the techniques you will need, then you can check here before you buy the pattern.
If you are looking for more beaded Halloween decorations, then you might be interested in my miniature beaded Halloween cake. If you aren’t keen on making the entire cake, then the pumpkin from the top can be used on its own. You can be sure that this bauble has inspired more ideas from me. So, I plan on adding some more beaded Halloween decorations and jewellery in the near future!
