Then link the slices together to form a chain. Use the hot glue gun to adhere the pieces together. If you plan on not moving the chains at all, you can skip this step. But, if you are planning on making a garland or moving them around in different ways, then I’d advise you to glue at least one side of each link.

Continue to link and glue the pieces…until you form your chain.

Lay your chain flat on an upcycled garbage bag or cardboard in a well ventilated area and spray paint it with either Rust-Oleum Glow in the Dark Spray Paint or Gray Spray Paint for a more realistic look. You can also spray with the gray first and then the glow in the dark after. Allow to dry, turn over and spray the other side. Continue to spray coats until you reach the glow effect or color desired.

Then use as a garland or any creepy effect you’d like! Remember if you use the Glow in the Dark Spray Paint, it needs to get ‘charged’ to glow. So make sure it gets direct light or sunlight to glow when it gets dark!
