I had a lot of fun putting together today’s project. It’s meant to be fun and a little bit silly and a piece you can wear for Halloween. It’s also an inexpensive project that doesn’t take many supplies – especially if you already have shrink plastic and markers in your craft stash!
What you will need:
- White Shrink Plastic
- Orange and Yellow permanent markers
- Hole punch
- 15mm jump rings
- Small pliers
First, trace, color, and cut your candy corn shapes on your shrink plastic. Mine are about 2.25 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall. I made 10 of them at this size to be the right finished length.
Next, punch two holes on each side of your shapes with a standard hole punch.
Bake your shrink plastic according to the package directions. Time and oven temperature will vary by brand, but you can expect the bake time to take approximately 3 minutes.
You will have some nice small plastic charms when you are finished! Now, use large jump rings to attach the charms together, alternating them upside down and right side up.
When you reach the end – attach your clasp to one end, and a blank ring to the other. (At this point I wished I had thought ahead and punched just ONE hole in the end charms, but it still worked just fine.)
Now you can wear and enjoy it!
