Paper Roses & Butterflies

Make them in Black for a Macabre Halloween decoration


Making your own Ribbon choker

I came across a Camo pendant last year, that is just my taste, sadly it did not come with the backing of a pin so I am going to make it a choker for my Halloween costume so I added the loop on it in the 2nd picture


Step 1 ~ Tools & Materials




Scissors, Measuring Tape, sewing Thread & needles,

Ribbon (size depends on the size of your loop,  mine I think was around an inch give or take) Lace,  or something solid with a ruffle (like what I picked out)

&  Ribbon Ends  also you will need some form of pliers. I used my 3-in-1 tool  (use one that does not have any grooves in it)

Step 2

fold one of the ends & sew it as it is a bit difficult to hold it in a fold & put the Ribbon end over it and be sure its all the way in and then clamp it shut. Sewing it will also help keep the ends from fraying alot



Step 3

making sure you have the ribbon all the way in the Ribbon end, use your pliers and Clamp the ribbon end on

Step 4

You are finished with the hard part…



Step 5

now just need some sort of clasp, (which I had to wait til I went to Joanns or Michaels for. For the best look, being as this is victorian style something with a filigree is best.


Well surprisingly michaels didn’t have it, but for once Janne’s actually had something I was looking for.

The You put the hook through, then straighten out and push into the ‘clasp’

I saw this, and really have to see if I’ll be able to figure out how to get my face etc on a photo like that.

This would be a great gag esp for those who work in a morgue, Hospital etc or anywhere that would be a dangerous workplace!

Just be sure that you are no where to be found when they come across it,  (leaving it out before you leave for a day off would be ideal! and YES I am demently morbid or would that be morbidly demented?)
