Today I made a dinosaur necklace!
First I got some mini plastic dinosaurs. I got them at a party store ("party favors") for a couple bucks. The package had about a dozen dinos.
Then I picked the one I wanted to use for this particular necklace:
I spray painted it silver, and then covered it in Polycrylic. Polyurethane would work too.
Then I screwed an eye-hook into the dino and attached it to a chain with a little metal circle you can get at craft stores. It's the kind of circle that has a split in it so you can bend it open and then closed again.
Once the dino and pine cone charm were attached, it was done!
I'd love to know if you make one! You could use other plastic critters too ... whales, bunnies, horses. Any plastic toy, really. :)
