Icky Mickey and Minnie Halloween Charms
In just a few easy steps, you can turn these shrink charms into cute accessories. Add them to bracelets or attach them to zipper pulls.
Print the charms on shrink paper and cut them out.
To use your charm as a bracelet or necklace pendant, you need to punch the holes before you bake them. If you wish to use the charm for a barrette, simply cut off the hole before you bake them.
Follow the baking instructions on the shrink paper package to bake the charms in a toaster oven or conventional oven. Watch the shrink plastic dance and curl! Do not allow children to use the oven.
If the charm is still slightly curled when it is finished baking, use a piece of cardboard or a spatula to flatten it completely.
Apply a couple coats of clear nail polish to seal the ink on the charm and make it water-resistant. Let the nail polish dry.
Add the charms to whatever you'd like! You can use jump rings and jewelry chain to create a charm bracelet or necklace, or attach them to a cell phone charm strap or zipper pulls. You can also glue charms to barrettes and hair pins.
