Make awesome Halloween Necklaces out of Hot Glue!

The Spider Web Collar Necklace
Frankenstein Monster Stitches
And Dripping Blood!

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!

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!

For a perfect Halloween statement!
Now, go be awesome!

I tried on waxpaper and hot glue stuck to it. Any suggestions? Spray something on it?

Step one, don't use wax paper. You might be able to soak it in water and see if you can peel the wax paper off. Use a silicone baking mat, they are no-stick for a reason. :)

What a great idea!
Do you know what can I use instead of a silicone mat?
I was thinking maybe waxed paper.

The stitches would be great for my costume... I was looking to see who sells this kind of thing but why pay a lot to something you can so easily make yourself? This is genius! Although I'm wondering how I'm able to pin this to my Pinterest site?

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.

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!

You can make them super durable if you gule over a piece of string. Leaving 2 tails to tie together.

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! :)
