Below are all the fabulous bloggers:
Polymer Clay - purple, brown and orange
Colorful micro beads
Needle tool 20 Gauge wire
Round nose pliers
Chain nose pliers
|You can see here the simple shapes required to make a cupcake shape.
Make a hole in the cupcake with the needle tool. Bake according to directions.
|When the cupcake bead is cool, paint some glossy sealer on the orange icing.
Drizzle some micro beads on the icing while the sealer is still wet.
Allow to dry.
|I chose an orange accent bead and stacked a tiny green bead on that to make a little pumpkin dangle.
Cut a 4" piece of wire. Fold 1/2" over the round nose pliers to form a loop.
Slide the dangle onto the loop.
|Slide the folded wire into the cupcake bead from the bottom up.|
|Add the eyeball bead.fold the wire over, just above the eyeball bead and make another loop.
Slide the loop on the lanyard clip.
|Wrap the wire tail around just below the loop to secure it.
