Last Minute DIY Costume

Last Minute DIY Costume

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”!

Materials:

Red Beads | Jewelry Thread | Jump Ring and Clasp | Crimp Beads

Procedures:

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.
