How to Make a Spooky Halloween Necklace

by Annette Green

A fun and easy DIY jewelry project


  • Various Idea-ology findings by Tim Holtz
  • 22" necklace chain, antique brass
  • E6000 metal glue
  • Mushroom alcohol ink by Ranger
  • Jump rings, antique brass
  • Halloween rub-on transfer
  • Sheet metal punch tool, Tim Holtz
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather metal findings you'd like to use. These are various pieces from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology line. Dab Mushroom alcohol ink on each piece to give them an aged look. Let dry or use a craft dryer.

    Step 2

    Use a metal hole punch tool like this one by Tim Holtz to make a second hole at the bottom of this word token.

    Step 3

    Use a strong metal glue like E6000 to start adhering pieces together. Let this set for a half hour before handling.

    Step 4

    Use jump rings and a short piece of necklace chain to attach several charms and other bits that you desire.

    Step 5

    The space below the word "Wicked" on the word token needed something. This is a good place to put a rub-on. I used this small bat. These Halloween remnant rubs are by Tim Holtz as well.

    Step 6

    Add a desired length of antique brass chain to your jewelry piece.

    Step 7

    Enjoy wearing a fun, one-of-a-kind seasonal necklace!
