I broke it down into two quick tutorials, the necklace and the box. Let's start off with the necklace:
- Bat Charm, buy or make
- Ribbon-ends (2)
- Jump-rings (2)
- Bracelet Closure
- Jewelry Pliers (Not Pictured)
Step 2: Slide your charm onto the length of ribbon,
Step 3: Apply a small dot of E6000 to the inside of your ribbon-end and let dry, then close down the sides of the end. Try on the necklace and check the fit, trim any unwanted ribbon from the other side. then apply ribbon-end.
Step 4: Attach a jump ring to the end of each ribbon-end and connect the closure as well.
Now onto the spooky gift-box:
- Wooden Coffin Box
- Acrylic Paint (Brown, Black, or Grey)
- Glossy Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Small bit of Red Satin
- Glue Gun
Step 2: Give your box a few coats of mod podge.
Step 3: Cut two pieces of satin, one slightly bigger than the coffin, one the same size. You can place the box on top to help you cut.
Step 4: Apply a line of glue around the edge of the inside of the top of your box and apply the coffin-sized bit of satin as you go. Do the same with the larger one for the bottom.
