I didn't go out for Halloween this year and I still feel the hole it left!!

I love all the inventive "bow" ties I have been seeing lately. This is my version.

 Making a clay bone is hella easy. Roll it into a ball and roll it skinny in the middle.

To make the end of the bone, just stick the fat part under your fingers and squeeze.


Bake according to the directions on the package.

 To give it a realistic color, paint the bone with a little bit of diluted paint and then wipe it off after a few seconds.

 Use three inches of wire to wrap each side and make little loops.

Add some chain and a clasp.

Have a party!!
