Today, a teensy little project. I call it Bunny Howling at the Moon.
So simple to make, and I used two fun items from - all together now - the dollar store. The black circle is a checker from the same set as the Chessmen Pendants. The little white bunny is a paperclip! Look!
Here are the steps. 1. Twist a bunny clip like you're taking apart an Oreo cookie. (I'm sorry there's no picture, I only have two hands. But don't try to tell me you don't know how to unscrew an Oreo - I won't believe you.) A little metal connector will pop out, and you will end up with two flat bunnies:
2. Heat a metal poker in a flame. 3. Melt holes in the checker and the bunny. 4. Put both on a long headpin.
5. Bend the headpin up in back, and make a generous-sized wrapped loop.
That's it! String a chain, cord or neckwire, and you have Bunny Howling at the Moon.
I'm already planning to make Vespa Howling at the Moon.
que lindos!! me encantan tus reutilizos!!:-DReplyDelete
OK it wasn't until you started talking about Oreos that the checker started looking like one! So I think if you're making these, you have to eat Oreos while doing so! Too stinkin' cute.ReplyDelete
Adorable and clever as always. Poor bunny, I felt a little sorry for him/her when I saw that needle going into its head...ouch! Cute, cute, cute.ReplyDelete
I love how you fearlessly use fire and melt holes in anything - you are my hero!ReplyDelete
very cute. I received the chess piece pendant and I love it.ReplyDelete
i was wondering how you got those little holes in there... red hot pokers eh? how handy are you!ReplyDelete
pretty pretty bunny!
I think the checker actually looks quite a bit like an Oreo. So maybe you need to make an Oreo necklace, too. ;)ReplyDelete
I need a dollar store, this is too darn cute!ReplyDelete
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, Oreos! blrhmmmpfth! (goes all Homer Simpson )
Bunny paperclips?!?!?!? MUST. HAVE.ReplyDelete
Impaled into a necklace they're darned cute too.
Just to be curious, can you possibly mention which dollar store? Is it a chain store or local? Because I've never seen anything like this in the dollar stores around me, but I would LOVE if I could find some. I have a small obsession with bunnies and this necklace makes me smile!ReplyDelete
How easy & interesting idea...looking really smart..hmmmReplyDelete
I love this rabit...Bunny... Beutiful nesclace
Bah! Great idea. I never thought about game pieces as jewels --Love it! I can only imagine the possibilities!ReplyDelete
