I used memory wire for this project. It is strong enough to weave without bending or losing its shape. I learned that there were memory wire looping pliers. I had a tough time making a loop, so I would suggest this if you want to work with memory wire in the future. Please make sure to use memory wire cutters because memory wire is hard. It will ruin your flush pliers if you try to use them on it.

I have linked some suggestions below of Swarovski, but here are some more: Click one of the links below and search for 6228 heart in the color Siam (Blood red), Light Siam (bright Red), Scarlet, Heliotrope (deep electric and poisonous purple), Vitrail Light (Icy purple with blue).

I love creepy crawlies for Halloween. I feel that they are much scarier because they are real. I will also admit that some spiders are adorable (the fuzzy ones that are more likely to be poisonous).
