My daughter loves to play dress up, so making seasonal necklaces for her has become a fun tradition. This Spooky Cute DIY Halloween Necklace was so simple and turned out so fun!
What You’ll Need:
- Foam Shapes
- Plastic Spiders
- Wood Beads
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Large Sewing Needle
- Glitter (Optional)
- Mod Podge (Optional)
Step 1: Once you’ve gathered the supplies for your necklace, you can repaint your pieces to whatever color you want with acrylic paint.
Step 2: I found the foam skulls and spider rings at Dollar Tree and decided to give them a makeover. For the skulls, I used ivory paint and shades of pink, purple and yellow for the wooden beads and spiders. The spiders actually came as rings, but with scissors I was easily able to snip the back part of plastic off.
Step 3: I applied two coats of paint to everything I painted. After the paint dries on your skulls and spiders you can add glitter and mod podge to help seal them!
Step 4: Cut a piece of yarn or string big enough to slip over your child’s head easily.
Step 5: Next, use a large sewing needle to poke a hole for the thread in your foam shape. Using the needle also makes it easier to thread the string through the wood beads.
Step 6: Assemble the wood beads in any pattern you’d like around the skull and tie a couple small pieces of ribbon or tulle once you have the beads in place.
Step 7: Lastly, I hot glued spiders onto strands of ribbon and finished off the necklace by tying a knot in the back.
It’s that simple to make your own Spooky Cute DIY Halloween Necklace! My daughter loved styling her necklace with her iloveplum tutu and witch hat for some Halloween magic!
