Halloween Beading Projects for all Levels
If you haven’t started on your Halloween beading projects yet, you’re going to run out of time! So, let me help you out here… I’ve chosen a selection of fabulous Halloween beading projects that are perfect for all levels of experience. So, it doesn’t matter whether you need a quick make, or you want something to get your teeth into – I’ve got you covered!
Easy Halloween Beading Projects
How about starting with a few spider webs to decorate your home? (Or car, or school, or anywhere else you want some spooky fun…)
This is super-easy to make, involving basically stringing! So, you can run up several of these in no time. Add some crystal sparkle and you have the perfect spooky decoration. If that sounds good, click here to get the pattern.
For another quick and easy project, how about some Pumpkin themed jewellery? After all, you’ve just decorated your house, so surely it’s time to decorate yourself?!
This jewellery just uses simple Peyote stitch. So, you might be fearing it’s more complicated or difficult than it actually is! (A word to the wise – never be put off by thinking something looks too hard…the best patterns are usually easier than they look!)
I don’t know about you, but when I think about Halloween, a couple of creatures spring to mind: bats and cats.
So, if these are right up your street, I’ve got a couple of really cute patterns you can try. The beaded bat uses Peyote and brick stitch. It’s an intermediate level pattern. But it’s so well written that you can easily give it a try at any level! (And don’t miss out on the cute story that inspired this Halloween beading project).
The cat is a simple design that works for any level of experience. You’re going to be using Herringbone to bezel Rivolis here. Then add the features. You can also wear this as a pendant if you’re looking for more themed jewellery. Click here to get the pattern.
More challenging Halloween Beading Projects
If you’re up for a bit more of a challenge, how about making a themed beaded box?
In fact, I have two for you to try…both available on Etsy.
So, if you’re loving the idea of witches, wizards, magic and spells, you might like this spellbook beaded box. You’ll be combining Peyote and CRAW in a fun project that you can make over a few days. Personalise it with your own colouring too!
My second themed beaded box also doubles up as an ornament. So, yes, more options for decorating your home. In fact, if you’re having a party, this Halloween beading project is perfect. You can fill these beaded box ornaments with gifts to give to your special guests.
Again, this project is available on Etsy. So, click here to grab a tutorial now.
