How to Make Spider Barrettes

I made this oh so cute spiders for the girls yesterday.
I thought they would be perfect Halloween barrettes.

5 black pipe cleaners
1 french barrette (optional)
2 eyes

Remove the extra metal part of the barrette and bend one pipe cleaner in half.

Find middle of pipe cleaners and place barrette parallel to pipe cleaners.

Wrap the bent pipe cleaner around the middle of the four pipe cleaners and the barrette.

Continue wrapping the the pipe cleaner completely around the barrette.

Add eyes, bend legs to look like a spider and add metal part back in barrette.
The girls liked them so much I made them each a spider barrette and each an extra one to play with.
Thank you B. Jane Brewing for this great idea and My Trendy Tykes for sharing the link on her blog.
