DIY animal necklaces

Hi Kitty Readers ! 

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 -

- glitter

- 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 . 

Make sure to tag #indiakittydiy on Instagram if you recreate this, or send it to me via email ! ( see contact page )

  1. So cute, I love this idea! Wish I'd hung onto my plastic animals now instead of giving them all away :O I'm currently making presents for my friends for our handmade secret santa xx

    1. Hi Miranda !

      thank you for all your thoughtful comments . Yeah I know how you feel, if I had kept my old plastic animals, I would have about a thousand or two more !

      Isn't that weird ! I am doing a handmade secret santa with some of my blogger friends later in the year !
