Wow! Can you believe that it’s the end of October already?? This month flew by! I’ve been busy so per usual I’m throwing together a last minute Halloween costume. A few years back I had a post for some last minute costume ideas that are work appropriate (go check it out here), but this year I’m going out with a friend who’s going to be dressed as a vampire. We thought it’d be fun to be a pair this year, so I’m going to be his “human”. Basically, I’m going to wear black and wear fake blood. Or that was the original plan, but I’ll admit I have no clue how to apply makeup let alone Halloween makeup, so I decided to go an easy DIY route and make a “blood necklace”!
Measure the circumference of your neck. Cut the jewelry thread to that length plus an additional 2 inches.
String the beads onto the string. Add on a tear drop bead where appropriate, I put two spaced out for where the fangs may be?
Attach the jump ring and crimp bead on one side. Crimp the bead down.
Attach the clasp and a crimp bead on the other side. Crimp the bead into place.
Cut excess thread. Tah-dah all done!
Wear that with all black and you’re good to go.
