Learn how to make a spooky skeleton pendant or decoration with Michelle's step by step project.

Step 1

Loop one end of a piece of wire and add the skull bead. Add 3 seed beads for the neck. 

Next add a centrally looped wire which will sit horizontally across your first wire for the skeletons shoulders. Add two more beads.

Step 2

Add another longer piece of centrally looped wire and add 2 beads to your main starting wire. Repeat this 2 more times.

Thread on 3 more beads after the last two and thread on the heart bead. Loop the base of the wire close to the base of the heart bead.

Step 3

To your 3 'rib' wires, thread 10 seed beads onto each  of the 6 ribs. Curl the ribs forwards to stick outwards and then around to meet at the back. Loop a few times around the main 'spine' wire to secure between the beads.

Step 4

Thread 4 beads onto each side of the top shoulder wire and loop the ends. Cut a 1.5" length of wire and loop one end. Thread on 5 seed beads, one 3mm bicone and 5 more seeds.  Loop the other end of the wire. Cut 5 small lengths of wire, all slightly different sizes and loop each end. Attach these all to the end of your 'arm' to look like fingers. Repeat this for the other arm.

Repeat at the bottom of heart bead and make the skeletons legs and toes.
