Ornament Thursday...Jennifer's Not-So-Scary Halloween Bracelet

Welcome to Ornament Thursday, this months theme is Brew.

It's almost October and if you haven't already started sporting your Halloween jewelry then now is the time. I noticed today on my morning walk the bats, pumpkins, and scarecrows are making their debut in my neighborhood. I love making my Halloween beads and each year I try to add at least one new style to my website. This year it is the Boo beads. This is a simple bracelet to make, but it packs a lot of color and fun. The supplies and instructions are below.....
1 Ceramic toggle
4 Halloween Character beads, bat, skull, ghost, witches hat
7 5 x 10 mm orange round glass beads
4 orange size 6 seed beads
2 crimps
beading wire

1. Attach one end of your beading wire to the loop portion of the toggle.
2. Begin, by stringing a glass bead, followed by a bat bead, and another glass bead. String a Boo bead, a glass, a ghost, and a glass bead. Next add a Boo bead, a glass, a witches hat, a glass, and a Boo bead. Follow this with a glass bead and a skull. Last, add the 4 seed beads and the crimp.
3. String the toggle bar onto the wire and then send the wire back through the crimp. Pull the wire snug and try the bracelet on for size before crimping. If it fits, crimp the bead and trim the excess wire.
