Spiders are probably the first thing that comes to mind when we think of something scary. Therefore, we have included a simple method to create your own spider earrings that will surely add style to your basic Halloween costume.

Take a look at the items needed for these earrings:

  • glass bead
  • 0.4mm copper jewelry wire
  • Head pins
  • jump rings

First, you need to take a red glass bead to make the spider’s abdomen. Then use the copper jewelry wire to craft his other body parts. Thread a glass bead through the head pin and place a hoop on top of the bead. Wrap the yarn around the head pin, then thread the yarn through the hoop.

Bend the wire in the shape of spider legs. Now continue to do seven more legs. Finally, bend the legs into certain shapes to make the spider look realistic.

These simple ghost tassel earrings are another way to show off your spooky flair. Make these wire ghost earrings this Halloween to spice up your weird look. These earrings are easy to make and work quickly with just a few materials.

Items needed to craft them:

  • black thread
  • white thread
  • Cardboard
  • jump ring
  • Hooks
  • Scissors
  • pliers
  • Darning needle

Take a piece of cardboard and start wrapping white yarn around the long side of it. Wrap it around 100 times or until full to your liking. After wrapping, cut your thread.

Now take a darning needle and cut a piece of yarn about 6 inches long. Thread your darning needle to sew your darning needle between the cardboard. Tie the double knot around the ball of yarn that is wrapped in the cardboard. Now repeat it on the other side to secure both ends.

Now gently slide the yarn out of the cardboard and then lay it over another long piece of yarn. Leave this yarn attached to the skein, as it gives the option of cutting it to suit your needs. Then tie it in a nice tight double knot to have a little bulge at the top. This bulge will form the spooky ghost’s head.

On the other side of the bouquet, cut the tied knot to get your pompom. Trim your tassel with scissors, then attach the earring material. Attach jump ring and hook. To get the eyes of these ghosts, use black thread and sew this black thread to the ghost’s head. This completes your ghost tassel earrings.
