What you'll need
- Bottle caps, recycled or from the kids' craft section of your craft store
- Orange acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Black permanent marker
- Narrow green ribbon
- Hammer and small nail (optional)
What you'll do
Paint each bottle cap with orange acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry and give it a second coat of paint if necessary. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Draw a jack-o'-lantern face on each of the bottle caps with black permanent marker.
If your bottle caps are not pre-punched with a hole (as they typically are when purchased from the craft store), you can easily make a hole in the cap with a hammer and small nail. To create a hole for your ribbon, simply place the bottle cap on a soft surface such as a towel, and hold the nail to the fluted part of the cap. Give the nail a tap with the hammer until a hole is created.
Thread a piece of narrow green ribbon through the bottle cap hole to create the necklace and tie the ends in a knot.
Wear your new creation or pass out to your little trick-or-treaters on Halloween!
