1. See No Evil

Konnichiwa, greetings from Japan. Welcome to our first day of Halloween Inspiration.  Today I have a fun pendant to help you keep an eye on those cheeky trick and treaters :)




Material Used

Sizzix Cirlces die
Sizzix Hinges, Latches, Handles & Photo Turns die
Framing mountboard off cuts
Glue (Hot Glue)
Black Gesso
Eyeball (usually available in bags at Halloween)
Gems
Glossy Accents
Leather cord


1.Cut out 3 circles (each 1.5"/3.5cm), take 1 circle and following image below, cut out part of the hinge shape.  If you don't have suitable dies you can purchase chipboard pendants that would be suitable.  

2. Sandwich the cut circle and hinge parts between the other 2 circles, refer to image below and secure with a strong glue (a hot glue gun was used here).

3.Paint the pendant (front & back) with black gesso, black acrylic would be a good substitute.

4. Using a hot glue gun attach the eyeball.  E6000 is a good alternative.

5. Apply Glossy Accents to all areas around the eyeball, including the top area where the leather will be threaded.  ( I took the photograph too early but the Glossy Accents was applied to all areas around the eyeball).

6. Drop your chosen gems around the eyeball while the Glossy Accents are still wet.

7.Once dry attach a leather cord.
