Step 1: Let's get started on this 5 minute project!

Amazing right?
So easy.  Here's how to start.
You'll need a silicone mat (I used my silpat)
and a hot glue gun with plenty of glue sticks.
I'd avoid a mini glue gun since you have to pump out so much glue...
but you could try it if that's all you have...let me know how it works!

You'll also need paint or sharpies...and some twine.
So easy, anyone could do it!

Step 2: Step by Step...

Run hot glue right onto the mat, careful not to
touch the actual tip to the mat.

Here's the step by step:
Start with a big blob and a line to another big blob.
This should fit roughly around your neck.
I did mine between 13 and 15 inches.

Just make sure to connect the hot glue to the necklace line.
Easy!  And this glue gun has a tiny little tip for precision work!
When the glue cools, it peels right off the mat PERFECTLY!!!

Step 3: Add some color!

Now for some color!
For the drips of blood I used a sharpie and just colored it!
For the web and the stitches I just misted on some spray paint!
Easy!

Then I punched a hole in the large side pieces...
Tie one some twine or string...
Wrap around the victims neck and tie in a bow!

Step 4: Time to admire!

SO COOL!!! Now, I know it's hot glue, but how reasonably durable is this? 1 wear? 5 wears? If you have any way to estimate. This would be really cool for regular wear, not just Halloween.
doodlecraft (author)  midsummermuse12 months ago
These are super durable! I guess if you pulled the string knot too tight or intentionally pulled it they would break. But I am sure these will last many, many years...100's of wears. And if they don't last quite that long, they are easy to make!
cwert doodlecraft11 months ago
You can make them super durable if you gule over a piece of string. Leaving 2 tails to tie together.

What did you put on for the make-up?
doodlecraft (author)  CAScreate11 months ago
I just used black eye liner. I was just going to line her lips and then I bumped into her making that "smiler" line. I added some downward stitches and called it good! :)
thanks!

These are great, and as you and others have noted, could be used to make lots of fun non-Halloweeny designs as well!

Just wanted to add that you don't need a silicone mat to make them as any non-porous surface will provide a work surface that will release your creation.  Try plastic transparencies or a cookie sheet, glass, tile, etc.  Also waxed paper, which can be used multple times for something like this before needing to be tossed.

Neat 'ible! These need not be just for Halloween. The should be an instant hit among high school girls.
And as an aside, such a charming sweet smile on the author.

Very cool idea! Def going to try this with the kids. Thank you! \ ( ' v ' ) /
lindarose9212 months ago
What a fun idea! You could use colored hot glue sticks instead of the transparent one so you don't even have to paint the necklace :)
doodlecraft (author)  lindarose9212 months ago
Thanks Linda! Yes, colored glue would be awesome!
andrea biffi12 months ago
That's an awesome idea!! I've also seen coloured hot glue with glitters!
That's a great idea! The only problem with the glitters is that some of the glitters stay in the glue gun, so next time you use it, it still got glitter in it.
