diy ♥ my little pony necklaces
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:
- drill - 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 make sense?
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
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 mmkay.
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 :)
♥ take along pony house ♥
