How to Make a Rattlesnake Necklace


Most rattlesnake necklaces use the rattler of a rattlesnake as the main focus of the necklace. You can make a variety of necklace types using a rattlesnake tail, including informal, rustic or a dressier style of necklace. This is achieved by switching up the type of necklace used with the rattler and painting the rattlesnake tail to give it a new color or appearance. Paint the rattle with metallic paints for the most formal appearance and leave it unpainted for the most rustic.

Things You'll Need

  • Necklace pendant
  • Rattlesnake rattler
  • Utility knife
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Clear paint sealer
  • Craft glue
  • Necklace
  • Clean the rattler by rinsing it out with water. Allow the rattle to dry overnight.

  • Fit the rattlesnake rattler into the pendant. Use a utility knife to trim the top edge of the rattle so that it will fit inside the pendant.

  • Paint the rattlesnake rattler the desired color with paints. After the paint dries, use a clear sealer over the rattle to protect the paint.

  • Fill the pendant with glue. Fit the end of the rattlesnake rattler inside the pendant. Allow the glue to dry overnight.

  • Slide the pendant onto a necklace to complete the necklace. Add additional rattlers, if desired, or leave the necklace with one rattle only.
