- Two 25 mM jingle
bells (orange, black,
purple, or green look best for Halloween)
- Two 12
inch long black pipe cleaners
- 24 beads (I used 8
mM round marbleized
length of wire (I used 20 gauge
- Small jewelry pliers (optional, but come
1. Begin the jingle bell spider by
attaching the two jingle
bells together. This is most easily done by taking a small
length of wire and threading it between the two small hangers in each
jingle bell, and wrapping it several times to secure. Use
some jewelry pliers to help.
2. Cut each 12 inch pipe cleaner in two six inch sections,
you will have four total.
Thread two pipe cleaners through the front jingle bell, and
two through the back jingle bell, as shown below.
Thread on a bead on to each of the 8 pipe cleaner legs, and
thread it all the way up flush with the jingle bell. You can
use a little glue to secure if desired. This keeps the legs
from coming out of the jingle bells.
Now, take your time and bend each leg to look like a spider
leg. Begin by bending each pipe cleaner up from where it
comes out of the jingle bell. Then about halfway down make
the pipe cleaner bend down. Look at the photos for help.
Then, thread on two more beads on each leg. Secure
the beads with a little bit of glue, if desired. A cord can
also be added around the middle of the two jingle bells for hanging.
