How to Make Felted Spider Earrings
- Gather the craft tools and materials listed above.
- Form the black roving felt into two balls about 3/4″ across. Use a felting needle and poke repeatedly to form a perfect ball.
- Stick the pinhead through the center of the ball; then, create a wrapped loop with pliers.
- Push white paper covered floral wire through middle of the ball to create eight legs. Add a dab of glue at the base of the legs to keep in place.
- Color the legs with black marker; then bend each end.
- Attach a silver chain to your spider with a jump ring. Use another jump ring on the opposite end to attach your earring hook.
