I just love using plastic animals in my crafts !
So I thought I would show you how to make one of my favourite crafts using fun plastic animals .
These necklaces are super cute and easy to make !
Heres what you will need -
- mod podge
- posca markers
- paint brush ( for the mod podge )
- thin leather
- assorted plastic animals
- wooden beads
First, swamp your animals with glitter, gems, paint, pom poms, pen or pearls. ( thanks for this deer Rosie )
Heres a step by step guide to the knot around the animal .
Step 1 - loop a piece of leather.
Step 2 - place the loop on the animal .
Step 3 - pull the two ends of the loop through the closed part of the loop . ( while around the animal )
Step 4 - this is your chance to add beads . You could add them all the way around the leather, or just two at the base of the knot.
Step 5 - tie a knot at the end of the leather . ( and add a bead . )
Thanks for reading this weeks post !
Come back next Sunday for another post .
