If you are dressing up as a vampire for Halloween, you do not always have to wear the traditional costume that includes a black cape and white face paint. Instead, you can put together a more subtle costume that incorporates many vampire elements in different ways. For example, you can make a vampire fang necklace using a few easily found craft supplies.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Polymer clay, white or cream
- Craft wire
- Wire cutters
- Baking tray
- Cotton cording
Separate half a pound of white or cream-coloured polymer clay into 12 pieces.
Form each clay piece into a cone, then taper the end of each cone into a sharp point. Each sharpened cone will become one vampire fang.
Cut 12 pieces of craft wire with wire cutters to measure 1 inch long. Insert a wire into the wide end of each clay vampire fang, and bend each wire into a circle.
Place the prepared vampire fangs onto a baking tray, and bake them in an oven at 93.3 degrees Cor 10 minutes. Let the fangs cool for 30 minutes.
Cut a piece of cotton cording to a length of 18 inches. String the vampire fangs onto the cording by inserting the cording through the wire circles. Tie the ends of the cording into a knot to wear the vampire fang necklace.
