Aren't these cute circus necklaces from Anthropologie? They're only $38, but I would want all of them. My inner 4 year old can't have just one. So that would be.....$152.00. Plus tax. And shipping.I decided to make them instead. And I wanted them all on one necklace, like a circus parade.
Why is it so hard to take a photo of yourself in the mirror?
I bought a cheapo pack of plastic animals and gussied them up with bits and bobs, then attached them to a thrift store necklace. The giraffe was too large compared to the other animals, so I substituted a lion instead. I cut bits of fabric for their saddles, then glued on rickrack and other spare jewelry parts to try to make them look like the originals.
Rawr! Look at me....I cost $3.50! This necklace keeps my daughter distracted at the grocery store, too. She likes the zebra best and begs to touch it. No. It's Mama's zebra.
Ooh Laura, SO fun!!! I want one! Looks like I'll be shopping for plastic zoo animals at the dollar store:)
