Hello Make It and Love It readers! It’s Emma from Crafting{E} again! I am SO excited to share this adorable project with you today. I LOVE fall and everything that comes with it. One of my favorite parts is all of the different holidays that occur.

Halloween is definitely a favorite of mine. Honestly, I feel like Halloween has gotten more exciting as I’ve gotten older. Sure, there may not be that added excitement over trick or treating, but dressing up is something I always look forward to.

Another thing that makes the holidays special for me is making them special for other people.

There is just something about seeing other people excited and happy that makes me 10x more excited and happy about whatever I am doing.

This is definitely the case with these necklaces. I made these adorable Halloween necklaces for me and my sisters. It was so fun to see their faces light up as I painted the wooden beads into pumpkins and spiderwebs.

The other great thing about this project is that you DO NOT need to be an expert at painting. If you couldn’t tell, I am definitely not a skilled painter, however, the designs on the beads are simple enough for anyone to paint!

I seriously am IN LOVE with these necklaces. I can’t wait to wear them with my little sisters once it’s Halloween. They will be such a fun addition to any Halloween outfit!


  • Wooden beads (mine are from Michael’s)
  • black, orange, and white acrylic paint
  • foam brushes, thin brushes, and dotting tool
  • leather cording (mine is from Michael’s)


  • First, choose 3 wooden beads and paint them orange, white, and black. Allow the paint to dry

  • FOR THE SPIDERWEB: Using a thin brush, paint white lines onto the surface of the black bead so it resembles a spider web. Look on the picture below for reference. Allow it to dry.
