I made this arachnid LED belt to wear to SXSW a few weeks back and I just got around to photographing it. The belt itself is made from searsucker fabric and the critter is constructed using buttons covered in wool and a variety of beads. It’s a simple project so I don’t think a tutorial is needed. If you’ve worked with LEDs before, the project should take you between 2-3 hours to craft.
I’m kinda obsessed with making a collection of insects belts now and I think a caterpillar belt is next on the agenda to welcome in spring. Since we’re on the topic of insects, you’ve got to check out this amazing short film created using electronic insects. Enjoy!
