Hi, my name is Natalie Stern. I am so excited to join 13 Days of Handmade this year. You can usually find me writing for my blog Confetti Diaries where I share creative ways to make, bake and celebrate. Or maybe I'll be steadily at work in my design studio creating unique invitations and other party goods for my shop, Katarina's Paperie.
No matter where I am, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, especially now that I'm a mom. I love sharing the excitement of dressing up and going trick or treating with my kids. I also love making fun Halloween crafts with them and can't wait to share this easy Halloween treat with you today.
Bottle cap necklaces have been trending at parties lately and it's easy to see why. They're pretty neat. I was so excited to discover how easy they are to make too. All you need are some simple jewelry making supplies and you'll be all set.
Since I'm always looking for non-candy alternatives for trick or treaters, these adorable little necklace charms are the perfect treat for the little ones. They're also so easy to make and a great craft to get your kids in the spirit of Halloween.
You Will Need:
Bottle caps with necklace attachment
1 inch round Halloween stickers (i found mine at orientaltrading.com)
1 inch clear epoxy stickers
Narrow ribbon or ball chains
1. Place the Halloween stickers onto scrap pieces of white cardstock. Stick the epoxy circle on top of the sticker.
2. Cut around the epoxy sticker circle.
3. Place a small dot of glue in the center of the bottle cap.
Press the epoxy sticker circle in the center, lining up the top of the sticker with the necklace ring of the bottle cap. Dab away any excess glue. Let dry.
4. Attach a narrow ribbon or ball chain through the necklace ring.
These bottle cap necklaces are such a great idea to hand out Halloween night. Or you can also use them as a Halloween party favor or even craft idea. One last packaging thought... place in a cello bag and add a treat bag topper for a cute Halloween gift idea.
