Fashion DIY: Bloody Necklace

Halloween is coming up and I love it when people make their own costumes rather than purchasing generic ones. Last month, I came up with a DIY idea that’s both perfect for the October festivities and for those who, like myself, simply possess a fondness for alternative style.

Materials:

Necklace (or other piece of jewelry) of your choosing

1 tube of red craft paint (I used Apple Barrel’s Flag Red)

A small cup of water

1 toothbrush

1 spoon (or spork)

1 paper bowl

Paper towels

Step 1: Squeeze a large drop of craft paint into the bowl. Add water a little bit at a time and mix it until you reach a thick yet loose consistency, like blood.

Step 2: Spread out your necklace on a blanket of paper towels.

Step 3: Dip the toothbrush into your fake blood mixture and splatter the concoction onto your necklace with a controlled, flicking motion.

Step 4: Leave your necklace to dry for about 20 minutes or until the paint is no longer tacky. When dry, turn it over and repeat step 3 on the other side. Then you’re done!
