Making Halloween polymer clay earrings

Pumpkin earrings

1. Roll the orange clay and make a hole

Using your hands, roll your orange polymer clay into two little balls; these will make the main part of your pumpkins. Once done, make a large hole in them. I used plyers to do this. The hole just needs to be shallow, you don’t want it to go all the way through.

2. Shape and insert brown clay

Roll out a thin sausage shape with your brown clay and insert it into the hole you made. Do this for both earrings.

3. Print marks

Use a thin piece of metal (I’ve used a safety pin that is stretched out) to print marks in your orange clay, making it look more like a pumpkin.

4. Insert hole and bake

Using your safety pin and pliers, poke a hole going all the way through the brown part. Then, bake the clay as directed.

1. Roll and shape your clay

Take your orange, yellow, and white polymer clay, and roll it into small balls so that you have two balls in each color. Once done, squash the colors together and shape them to form the candy corn shape.

Using pliers and a safety pin, poke a hole in the top of both designs going all the way through. Continue to bake as directed.

1. Shape the clay

Take some white polymer clay and create the shape, as shown above. The big circle in the middle will be your ghost’s head, and the two little features on the sides will be your ghost’s arms.

2. Insert a hole

Using a safety pin, insert a hole through the top of both of your earrings.

3. Print a design

With the safety pin, you also want to engrave three little dots onto your design. These will be your ghost’s eyes and mouth.

4. Insert black clay and bake

Take some black clay and make very small balls to fill in the little holes you just made. Once done, proceed to bake as directed.

Making Halloween chocolate bar earrings

Chocolate bar earrings

1. Roll and shape clay

Roll a piece of brown clay into a flat disc, and then you want to make it into a rectangle. I used a plastic card (like a credit card) to help me cut the edges so that they were neat.

2. Print a design

Continue to use the card to make lines in the clay. You want to create a 3x4 grid that looks like a chocolate bar.

3. Remove some clay

I then broke away one corner to make it look like the chocolate bar had a bite taken out of it.

4. Insert hole and bake

Proceed to pierce a hole in the top of your earrings with the safety pin and bake as directed.

Attach earring fastenings

Now that all of your earrings are baked and have cooled down, the final step for all designs is to insert jump rings and earring fastenings. Use your pliers to insert jump rings through the holes.

Once done, join the earring fastenings to the jump rings. Do this to all of your earrings.

    What is the length of time to bake and what oven temp? I don't use a toaster oven to bake with and don't think you can use microwaves.
