The Spider Charm Necklace

My post for this month's Lightening Craft was inspired by my most recent near death experience...and I do mean the experience I posted about on Instagram this morning, I figured, why the heck not make a spider necklace.  I mean if that is going to be the reason I inevitably die, I might as well embrace it right?

I will also add, that I completely forgot all about having to have this project done this morning so I rushed to get it done this morning. Truly it has been a 15 minute craft, minus dry time.

Like the apple earrings, the pencil necklace and The Fault in our Stars best friend necklaces, I made little spider charm design in my Silhouette program and then cut it out of black paper.

I glued them all together to make a thicker paper charm.

When that was done, I glued on some googly eyes because I thought it would be way cuter, and it is!

And then like the other charms, I topped it with some Mod Podge Dimensions.

I impatiently waited for it all to dry, added a jump ring and strung a chain through it. And just like the projects before it, I had an awesome and super fun necklace to wear.  I mean, I might not wear it because it is, afterall, a spider, but I might pass it along to someone who will wear it!

I put it on to take this picture and then I may or may not have promptly thrown it away just in spite of it being a spider (which I didn't really throw it away, but I wanted to...)

I hate spiders.

This craft was thrown together to be apart of a series for 15 minute crafts!
