Intro: Hallow-Rings: the Perfect Halloween Accessory

"It was on All Hallow's Eve that all the witches and warlocks come out to play..."

Who doesn't love Halloween? Full of princesses, scary bed sheet ghosts, and witches running around the neighborhood trying to get the most amount of candy. We all love to dress up for the holiday, no matter how young or old. There are plenty of creative costumes for sale weeks before Halloween. But what about accessories? Well learn how to make your own Hallow-Rings for Halloween. They are simple, easy, and fun to make and they are made with sugru- a new silicone-like product from the UK!

And if you like this instructable, vote for it in the Gorilla Glue, Halloween and Sugru contest.

Step 1: Materials

To make your own Hallow-Ring, you will need:
  • 1 pack of Sugru
  • A package of a rhinestone chain (or whatever you want to decorate it with)
  • A plastic clay roller
  • A clay knife
  • A strong pair of scissors (to cut the rhinestone chain)
  • Saran wrap (to keep the sugru from sticking everywhere)

Be sure to measure how big you want the ring to be (cut a piece of string that is the correct length and measure your string).

Step 2: Open and Roll the Sugru

Cut a piece of saran wrap to cover your work area. Open the packet of sugru and roll it in your hands to form a kind of worm- shape. Place the formed sugru onto the saran wrap.

Step 3: Forming the Ring- Flatten

Fold the saran wrap over the sugru. Use the clay roller to flatten the sugru. Don't worry if it's not flat because the next step is cutting it. Use the clay knife to cut the piece of sugru so it's straight and to the size you want it.

Step 4: Add the Crystals

Using the same measurements as the last step, cut the rhinestone chain to fit onto the piece of sugru you have cut and flattened. Push the chain down until it is secure.

Step 5: Roll the Ring and Finish

Peel off the saran wrap from the ring. Curve the ring up until it forms a circle. Smooth the place where the ends of the ring meet. Let the sugru dry for 24 hours.

You have now make a Hallow-Ring!! Pair it up with your favorite costume and you're sure to be the talk of the neighborhood :)

    No, unfortunately. I had to open 2 packs to make those different colored rings in the picture. However, I made 4 rings total with two packs so it was worth it. If you have leftover sugru, you can always make another project with it!

    On the Sugru website is a vid that shows you how to combine the standards colours to get the colours you want.

    Well you can buy the colors separately. They have black, green, orange, and blue. I got the "starter" pack which had twelve packets (3 of each color).
