You will notice that most of the pictures show a rope light. After I put everything together, I decided I didn't like the effect that the rope light, so I removed it and replaced it with some white icicle lights.
This project took me about a total of 4 hours to complete. But if I did not replace the lights, it would have taken about 3 hours.
Step 1: Materials
- Dress form
- Junk jewelry
- Lights -- I used Christmas lights, but you can you a rope light or other type that you like
- Zip ties
- Jewelry pliers
- Dremel tool for cutting the skull
- Gorilla glue
Step 2: Insert Your Light(s)
Step 3: Add the Jewelry
Once again, some of them are glued on and some were just attached through the wire frame. I used the jewelry pliers to bend some of the pins of the brooches and the backs of some of the earrings.
Step 4: Add the Skull (or Head)
I needed to cut a hole in the bottom of this skull. I had just purchased a Dremel Saw Max so I was anxious to try it out. As you can see from the photo, it was a bit "rough". I would recommend using a regular Dremel Tool. But since this part would be hidden, I didn't need to clean it up too much.
Once you have the hole cut, glue the skull to the top of the form.
Step 5: Accessorize!
I put her in the corner of my living room. Love her!
