Spooky Bat Necklace

By:

Scare up some fun this Halloween and create a super simple Spooky Bat Necklace from Candace Jedrowicz. DIY steampunk jewelry is a cool way to incorporate a rough industrial look into your wardrobe. This project is so easy, even kids can give it a try.


Spooky Bat Necklace
 

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue
  • Craft foam – I used black, but any color would work
  • Metallic Past – copper
  • Washers – No larger than 1/3″ wide
  • Nuts -no larger than 1/4″
  • Scissors
  • Bead for one eye – should fit into the center of the washer
  • Tiny bead cap for the other eye – it needs to fit next to the washer on the bat’s face
  • Craft knife
  • Hole punch – 1/8″
  • String or ribbon
  • Wire – I used 20 gauge, but most any size will work
  • Bat Necklace Template

Instructions:

  1. Cut out the bat necklace template, trace on the foam and cut out.
     
  2. Cut the gray areas out of the paper bat, keeping the head and body as one pieces.  Trace all the pieces on the foam and cut out.
     
  3. Cut out the head on the paper bat, trace on the foam and cut out.
     
  4. Rub copper paste on the foam pieces.  Do a tiny bit at a time.  You can add more if you desire.
     
  5. Cut a tiny x on one side of the individual bat head.  Cut just large enough for the eye bead.
     
  6. Place a tiny drop of glue on the cut x and push the bead in.
     
  7. Glue all the foam pieces in place.
     
  8. **You may want to cut the ears off the whole bat piece and the body with head piece, if they don’t line up with the individual head piece**
     
  9. Punch holes just to the outsides of outer foam triangles.
     
  10. Glue the metal pieces according to the photo above, making sure to glue the outer metal pieces over the holes.  Allow to dry.
     
  11. Thread string through the holes.  Tie knots and wrap the wire around the string tails and trim off excess.
