While I waited for stain to dry this weekend, I kept busy with a little thrifty craft action:
Have you seen this necklace before?
I knew I had to make my own after seeing one in the newest Anthropologie catalog:
$48... no thanks!
I created my own version using Dollar Tree flowers ($1), two thrift store chains ($2), scissors, and pliers...
for a total of $3.
I used the pliers to remove the clasp from the gold chain and attach it to the silver one. The scissors helped me cut apart the petals and create holes to thread through the gold chain.
I was able to get the fuller look by alternating between one hole and two hole petals.
I love the way the gold looks peeking through the white petals.
Don't worry Anthropologie... although I was able to make your $48 necklace for $3, I still love you! I promise to wear it with one of your dresses. I doubt that will be something I'll be able to DIY.
Anyone have a chance to do a knockoff craft lately?
PS I'm linking up with The 27th Penny Pinching Party over at The Thrifty Home.
Make sure you head over and join in on the fun!
