Adding some Halloweeniness to your wardrobe doesn’t have to be an in-your-face ordeal.  Something understated yet festive, like this mummy necklace by Tai at TaiDye Original, is just right for adding a touch of Halloween to an outfit without going overboard.  The secret ingredient in this craft is thread tape, the kind used in plumbing!  If you have a handyman hubby, it’s likely he has some you can snag out of his toolbox; if not, you can find it cheap at any home improvement or hardware store.  [how to make a mummy necklace]
