yay it's friday ♥
and it's almost the weekend
which means we need to make stuff ... and valentines day will be here before you know it!
you NEED to put some of these together for all the little girls you happen to know :)
i made these last month,
when i had a little bit of time the week before Christmas to make a few gifts
and my craft night besties and i, have an annual cookie exchange/craft night
where we exchange not only cookies :) but gifts for each other and for our daughters
(comin up with crafty gifts for boys seems harder right?)
and to make things a little easier most of our girls are really into my little ponies right now
and um ... (clearing throat) so are the mamas.
(and one dad) (yeah you know who you are one dad)
loved how simple these necklaces were to put together!
what you'll need:
- very tiny drill bit
- 1/2 inch screw eyes
(found these in that isle at Lowes
where all the washers & screws are in those little drawers)
- ball chains
(from hobby lobby - these were 18 inches)
- and some miniature my little ponies
(found these at toys r us)
the only thing that you really need to figure out is where to drill the hole for the eye screw
we stood the ponies up since they all have different heights & stances
then drilled a hole on the top of the head where we thought
they would hang best from the chain without being crooked
screw the eye into your hole and that's it!
it should look like this ...
all the little girls loved them!
seriously i've considered wearing some ... they make me so happy
they'd even be cute layered on top of each other if you make a bunch
twilight sparkle, pinkie pie and applejack
i just love how colorful they all are
and did you know pinkie & AJ are cousins?? yes they are. so my littlest little tells me
helloooo. mom. don't you know this? it's important stuff
there a few of these in my etsy shop too!
if you'd rather scoop one up
without all the intimidation from the power tool
take a peek at this cute pony house project i made last year too while you're here :)
happy making stuff!
