Halloween is coming, people! And we are all about getting into the DIY spirit (especially with DIY Halloween jewelry) here at zuuzStyle! I came across this gold Tom Binns spider ring a few weeks ago and it got me thinking about more affordable Halloween DIY jewelry alternatives. I was reminded of the plastic spider rings we used to wear as kids and headed out to the craft supply store to investigate. The result is a pretty good dupe for the Tom Binns version and will save you a ton of money. Keep reading for a fun piece of DIY Halloween jewelry!
You will need:
- plastic spider rings
- gold paint (I used Martha Stewart’s liquid gilding in gold)
- paint brush
- optional: rhinestones or beads for extra bling.
Prep the area with newspaper, cardboard, or construction paper. Shake up the paint and lay out the spider rings.
Cover the rings in gold paint. Make sure to get in all the nooks and crannies. Let dry and then flip the rings to paint the areas you couldn’t get to on the first coat. One coat was enough with the Martha Stewart paint, but if you’re using a different brand it may take two or more coats for a solid finish.
Add rhinestones or beads for an even glitzier look! Use super glue (carefully!) and get creative. Or you can keep your spider pure gold a la Tom Binns.
Ta da! You’re all set for Halloween and will have the prettiest spider ring out there.
Will you try this DIY Halloween jewelry come October 31st?
