Hello, 1825 readers! I am thrilled to be here posting at my favorite series: Spooktacular September! It speaks to my Fall and Halloween loving heart. Today my daughter and I have something extra fun to share with you: a Jack Skellington Necklace. Jack Skellington is the main man from The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you haven’t seen it, remedy that. It’s a Halloween must see!!
Let’s look at how I made this necklace. It was very easy, and it get loads of attention and compliments everywhere we go! Start by heading to www.FizzyPops.com to order some beads. These are the beads that I ordered:
- Bottle Cap (to create the skeleton face pendant)
- Black 24MM (10 pack) beads
- Black and White Striped Beads 20MM (10 pack)
- Purple and White Striped Beads 20MM (10 pack)
- Purple AB Faceted Chunky Beads 12MM (25 pack)
- Purple Ice Cube Chunky Beads 20MM (10 pack)
- Clasp (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
- 4 – 6MM silver beads (doesn’t have to be sterling)
- crimp tubes
- jewelry stringing wire
Start by turning the bottle cap into a Jack Skellington charm. Freehand draw it. It’s not hard. You won’t be sorry. 😉
Next bust out all of your purple and black beads and arrange them in a fun necklace-y way.
String all of your beads onto your beading wire and attach the clasps to finish it off.
Now go put it on a small human who will showcase it like a boss for you . . .
If you can find some The Nightmare Before Christmas fabric and make it into a simple twirly skirt your outfit will be extra festive and fun!
