Halloween Necklace
by Bluebonnet Crafters


  • A recipe of glue and cornstarch dough or bread dough

  • Acrylic paints of your choice

  • 36" length of black rattail cord or plastic lacing

  • Pony beads in black and orange (6 each color)

  • 3 wire loops or cut a paper clip in half and use the rounded top

  • Black permanent marker

  • Glitter


Using the recipe of dough shape three pumpkins or one pumpkin and two ghost shapes. Place the wire loop into the top of each sculpture. Allow to dry thoroughly (It is wise to dip the wire into white craft glue before inserting it into the sculpture for added security).

When your sculptures are dry and very, very hard they can be painted with regular acrylic paint and the ghosts can be sprinkled, while wet, with a small amount of iridescent glitter. Use a fine point permanent black marker to draw the features on both the pumpkin and the ghost.

Place the pumpkin on the cord first. Place a black bead on each side of the pumpkin and then an orange, another black bead, a ghost, or a second pumpkin and continue alternating the black and orange pony beads until you have 6 on each side of the center pumpkin.

Tie the ends of the cord in an overhand knot and your necklace is ready to wear.

Bread Dough Recipe


  • 1 Slice of white bread or use 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch

  • 1 Tablespoon of white craft glue

  • Zipper type plastic bag


Remove the crusts and save for bread crumbs. Tear the center of the bread slice into small pieces place them in the plastic bag and add the glue. If using cornstarch Put glue in bag first and add cornstarch as you mix to get the correct consistency. Close the zipper and knead the bag until it pulls away from the sides and forms a ball.

A small amount of talcum keeps the dough from sticking.

You can color your dough by adding a small amount of paint or food coloring to the dough as you mix it. You may also paint the finished items.
