Whether you’re dressing up as a zombie, Frankenstein’s monster, or Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas for Halloween, or you just have a morbid sense of humor, you will love this quirky reattached-decapitated-head necklace by Instructables user PixyMcCrafty.  I know that my local Dollar Tree still has some colored wire in their crafty section, which would be perfect for this project.  She used polymer clay to create each X of the stitching; a commenter on the project suggested using sugru (a rubbery silicone clay) instead to make it more comfortable to wear.  Either way, this piece is certainly quite clever!  [how to make a severed head necklace]

Project estimate:

  • Red wire, $1 and up
  • Polymer clay, on hand or about $2 and up
  • Clear coat, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  $1 and up
