Resin Poison Apple Necklace

Add a touch of evil to your fashion with this Poison Apple Necklace made from resin!

DIY Resin Poison Apple Necklace

There's really no better time of year to celebrate villains than right now! I've always been fascinated with the Disney Villains, and especially love creating crafts themed around all of them. This Poison Apple Necklace is the just what you need to show your evil side this Halloween, and is the perfect accessory for any villain at heart to wear all year long! This necklace has become one of my favorite pieces, and I am so excited to share how you can make one, too!

Resin and Glitter Supplies

To make your own Poison Apple Necklace, you will need these supplies:

Poison Apple Mold and Bronze Bezel

You will also need a Poison Apple Silicone Mold and an open bezel pendant. The poison apples are around 1/2", so make sure that your bezel is larger than the poison apple. You can make your own mold, or you can purchase a Poison Apple Silicone Mold from somewhere like Etsy.

Snow White Poison Apple

A poison apple can actually be any color combination. The one I see the most often is green and red, but I've also seen incredible designs in purple, black, and even pink! There isn't a right or wrong choice, so have fun with it! I decided to take my inspiration from this image in Disney's Snow White and go for an iridescent white and bright red color for my necklace. If you decide to go with a different color combination than what I did, just switch the dyes and glitters out for your color choices in the tutorial.

White Resin Mixture

Prepare about 1/4 oz EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to package directions. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and wear disposable gloves. Pour in equal parts of resin and hardener to the mixing cup. Slowly stir the resin mixture together with a stir stick for two minutes.

Add a drop of pearl opaque resin dye and sprinkle in a generous amount of white iridescent glitter and a little bit of iridescent mica powder. Stir the resin mixture again for another minute or two with clean stir stick until evenly incorporated.

Poison Apple Molds filled with White Resin

Because my mold is so small, I got out my larger Poison Apple Silicone Mold and filled it as well so you can see what I did a little bit better.

Use a toothpick to fill the poison part of the mold ONLY. Some of the "drip" areas of the mold are a little hard to fill, so lightly pull some of the resin into those areas. The resin will self-level, so as long as you fill the entire area, it will all even out. Work slowly, and try not to get any resin onto the eyes or "apple" area, if possible.

Pop any bubbles that rise to the top using a lighter, heat gun, or by blowing through a straw. Leave the resin to cure in an undisturbed, well ventilated area for at least 4 hours. DO NOT REMOVE THE RESIN FROM THE MOLD!

Red Glitter Resin Mixture

Prepare about 1/3 oz EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to package directions. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and wear disposable gloves. Pour in equal parts of resin and hardener to the mixing cup. Slowly stir the resin mixture together with a stir stick for two minutes.

Add a drop of red transparent resin dye and sprinkle in a generous amount of fine, red glitter. Stir the resin mixture again for another minute or two with clean stir stick until evenly incorporated. You'll want the resin to be a bright red apple/cherry color.

Poison Apple Mold Filled with Red Resin

Do not try to remove the white resin from the mold AT ALL. Carefully pour the red resin over the white and fill the mold(s) up the the rest of the way. Be careful not to overfill! 

Pop any bubbles that rise to the top using a lighter, heat gun, or by blowing through a straw. Leave the resin to cure in an undisturbed, well ventilated area for 24 hours. You will know that the resin is completely cured when it is no longer tacky to the touch.

Resin Poison Apples


Once the resin is completely cured, carefully remove the pieces from the mold. You only need one of the apples for the necklace, so decide which one you like best, and save the other for another project (or make a necklace for a friend!). I love how these apples turned out, and wish that my camera would show how cool the white part really looks. It's a gorgeous iridescent white that slightly changes color in the light and shimmers beautifully from the glitter!

Bezel on Tape

Set the apples aside while you get set up for the next part. Cut a 3-4 inch piece of packing tape. If you cut it too long (like I did), just fold the end over. This actually works out better because it makes it easier to grab onto or move around without getting stuck to it! Place the bezel pendant on the sticky side of the tape and use a brayer tool to press it down well. Turn the tape over and press it again, and even scrape it down well with your fingernails, so that the bezel is stuck down really well.

Black Resin Mixture

Prepare about 1/2 oz EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to package directions. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and wear disposable gloves. Pour in equal parts of resin and hardener to the mixing cup. Slowly stir the resin mixture together with a stir stick for two minutes.

Add a drop of black opaque resin dye and sprinkle in a generous amount of chunky black holographic glitter, and fine white iridescent glitter. I've found that regular black glitter WILL NOT show up in resin, so don't use it! Stir the resin mixture again for another minute or two with clean stir stick until evenly incorporated.

Bezel filled with Black Resin

Use your stir stick or a toothpick to carefully fill the bezel with the glittered resin. Be careful not to overfill! If the resin starts to leak underneath the charm (like mine did), don't panic! Just leave it there to cure and remind yourself that it will all be okay!

Pop any bubbles that rise to the top using a lighter, heat gun, or by blowing through a straw. Leave the resin to cure in an undisturbed, well ventilated area for 1-2 hours.

Poison Apple in Resin

After about 1-2 hours, the resin has had some time to thicken up to a thick gel consistency. Grab the poison apple piece with some tweezers or pick it up carefully at the top edges with your fingers. Place the apple in the center of the bezel and lightly press it down into the resin. Make sure that the apple is straight and centered, because it's hard to move after this point!

Leave the resin to cure for 12-24 hours. You will know that the resin is completely cured when it is no longer tacky to the touch.

Poison Apple Charm with Craft Knife

Carefully and slowly peel the packaging tape away from the bezel. As long as the resin is cured, the tape should come off easily and without a problem. If the resin isn't pulling away from the tape, you may need to let it cure for a bitt longer. If there is any sticky residue left behind on the charm from the tape, you can gently wipe it away with some rubbing alcohol.

If the resin leaked at all underneath the charm, don’t panic! Use a craft knife and gently cut or scrape away the excess resin from the metal part of the charm. Just be careful not to scratch the metal or the resin that’s inside the charm!

DIY Resin Poison Apple Necklace

To make the charm into a necklace, add a jump ring to the charm hook. Thread a chain through for a necklace, or add a keyring like I did with these Alcohol Ink Keychains! I am so excited to wear this necklace not only on Halloween, but all year round to show a bit of my evil side. If you know anyone else who is a fan of villains, this would be a creative and unique gift idea!
