DIY: Spooky Skeleton Necklace

It's time for another Halloween DIY! This is definitely one of my favorites, and it's SO simple!

What you'll need:
  • a styrofoam skeleton hand (I found mine in this Bag of Bones, from a local Halloween store)
  • a chain or circular metal necklace (I used one from a necklace I already have)
  • sandpaper 
  • wire/cable cutting pliers
  • sharp metal pick

Pull the fingers off of the skeleton hands. I just twisted them and they came right off.

Cut the excess wire off at the broken part of each finger. Sand them down until smooth.

Using a sharp metal pick, poke a hole just below the sanded part of each finger.

String the fingers on to your chain or wire circular necklace.


There are many different ways to do this project. If you use a plastic skeleton hand, I recommend drilling the holes. Also, I considered spray painting the fingers silver but decided to keep them as is. The possibilities are endless!
