I found these specific wood stickers at the dollar store, but you could use any other very small wood shapes for similar jewelry pieces.

DIY HALLOWEEN JEWELRY
GLITTERY GHOST EARRINGS
These sweet little ghost earrings are made from two wooden ghost stickers. I love how it looks like they are just giving you a friendly shrug. First, I gave them a quick coat of white craft paint and then a coat of white glitter. I drilled a small hole at the top of each ghost and then added some findings to turn them into earrings. Use different jewelry findings to turn these ghost shapes as pendants on a necklace or as a key chain! If you really want to make sure the glitter doesn’t shed, spray a coat of Mod Podge Ultra on the earrings and let them dry for 4 hours.
JACK ‘O’ LANTERN PIN
This jack ‘o’ lantern pin could not be easier to make. I painted it with orange craft paint and then a coat of Color Shift Orange Flash to give it some shine and dimension. Hot glue a pin back onto the back of the wood sticker and you have yourself a Halloween pin!
SHIMMERING BAT NECKLACE
This is the most difficult of the three tutorials, but it is still definitely do-able! I painted the bat shapes with black paint and Red-Blue-Violet Dragonfly Glaze to add shimmer to the shapes. Then I used a 1/16″ drill bit to carefully drill holes at the tip of each wing, and the tail of two of the bats.
TIP: You have to be very careful as you drill these hole because it is easy to drill too close to the end of the wood sticker and crack the wing off. Thankfully, there are plenty of bat stickers in the pack, so you can mess up a few times and still have enough bats to make this necklace.
I then used black jumpings to connect the bats together and to attach the chain to the wood shapes. Wouldn’t this make an amazing necklace to wear this Halloween?
