Now...without further ado, I give you Sosanna's
Craft-tacular Saturday Giveaway!Welcome to the final Samhain's Sirens' Craft-tacular Saturday Giveaway.
On this final Saturday Craft-tacular, I thought we'd look at making a beading project. Not your typical one mind you after all Samhain is just around the corner.
Making a Crystal Spider
1. Large and small crystal bead
2. Beading wire, 24 gauge
3. 80 small elongated seed beads (for leg length)
4. 24 small colored seed beads to add contrast to legs (optional)
5. Beading plier
6. Beading wire cutter
Start by using beading wire through both the large and small crystal bead; allow spacing in between for leg attachment. Twist to a triple loop at each end, making a couple rounds is so that you can adjust as you add legs later.
Cut 4 wire strips approx. 5 in. long and loosely bend in half.
Add your elongated beads 5 at a time then use 3 colored beads as separated. Do this to both sides.
Voila! You just made 2 legs! Continue for the other three pieces.
Now attach legs by twisting once around in between two crystals, do this for the remaining legs.
You will need to form the legs as you go and tighten or loosen the triple loops on each end as mentioned above for accommodation of legs.
You now have a great crystal window hanger or just a really cool spider for your curiosity cabinet!
That's all there is to creating your crystal spider!

Caramel Apple Cider Boo Shooters

1. Dip four shot glasses in the caramel and then dip them in the Halloween sprinkles to rim the glasses. Make little boo faces on the shot glasses with a Sharpie if desired!
2. Pour the cider into the shot glasses and garnish with apple slices. Drizzle any remaining caramel over the apple slices. Serve!
Music on a Saturday!
