DIY Halloween Eyeball Necklace

It’s almost October 31st and so in celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, I thought I’d share this fun necklace tutorial with you guys. Because nothing screams “Halloween” like an eyeball hanging off your neck, am I right?

The other day I was trying to think of something Halloween-related that I could post (I’m a pretty big Halloween fan – like the annoying type who plans their costumes a year in advance), when suddenly the idea of making eyeball jewelry just popped in to my head. I know what you’re thinking, these are the kind of innovative ideas our generation needs. What can I say, I’m just destined for greatness.

So once I got this idea (or should I say eye-dea 😉 ) in my head, I searched my house for any bits and pieces lying around that might be useful. I ended up with an old keyring, a chain from one of my many broken necklaces, a few nail polishes, a marble that I stole from my brother and, of course, my faithful glue gun. (Oh and on a side note, I really think I should give my glue gun a name…leave any suggestions in the comments below!)

Anyway, several glue gun burns and nail polish spills later (I don’t know why I choose to do so much crafting when clearly my coordination skills were not meant for DIYs), I managed to come up with a pendant that was relatively eyeball-resemblant if I do say so myself.

And I don’t want you guys to feel like you have to limit yourself to wearing this necklace only on Halloween by the way. A class presentation, a wedding, a job interview…I mean I’m pretty confident that eyeballs are appropriate for any situation. So, without further ado, I’ll get on with this tutorial. Make sure to like, share and comment below letting me know what plans you guys have for Halloween! Are you the kind of person who goes to a bunch of wild costume parties, or are you the type that stays home and eats the trick-or-treater’s candy? (I think we all know which category I fall into 😉 ) I hope you all have a great weekend and get a chance to try out this DIY!signature

 

 

What you need

eyeball-5

a keyring, with a jump ring attached to it

a large white marble (that’s slightly bigger than your keyring)

blue, red and black nail polish

a glue gun

a chain

Method

  1. Carefully glue the marble onto the rim of the keyring, making sure that the jump ring is sticking out at the top.
  2. Next, use red nail polish to paint little squiggly lines around the marble to look like veins. To make sure the lines were really precise, I dipped a needle into the nail polish and used that to make the designs.
  3. On the top of marble, paint a blue circle for the iris and a smaller black circle for the pupil.
  4. Once the polish has dried, slip your chain through the jump ring on the eyeball pendant and you’re done!

    Cool necklace!!! I liked Halloween when I was younger–I mean, who wouldn’t, free candy was involved lol!! But now I’m older and can’t go, but that’s okay, because I’m sure my family will still get me some candy!!! 😄
