Due to massive, overwhelming popular demand (okay, three emails), here's a tutorial for my "Put a Bird On It" upcycled necklace! Remember? The one made from the plastic tube inside a roll of dog poop bags?
Ahem. It's way prettier than it sounds.
Ready to DIY? Here goes!
Next, you will need a bird. I found mine in the wedding section of the Dollar Store - a package of 50 for a buck - huzzah! But you could use any cute bird bead with a hole in the middle. (I had to melt the holes in these.)
Your basic necklace is done!
But wait - there's more!
I kinda love that it all started with a little gift from Bailey the Bagel Hound. What a prince!
Thanks for liking this project, you guys! See you next time for a new Guess The Mystery Thing Game.
You really are brilliant - I love the idea of using a hot pokey thing to melt holes into things - used it to make a bug cage recently - I appreciate the tip!! :)ReplyDelete

Ironically, I use dollar shop bags for dog... gifts because they're too thin for anything else. I think I have to make the switch to the purpose-made poo pouches. (In Israel they're called saci caci -- sac= bag, i = my, caci = doodoo. Bit of useless fun trivia for you.)ReplyDelete
Our pets inspire us in the most unusual ways:-) Just too cute as always!!ReplyDelete
That is so cute! I love that you recycled something to make it :DReplyDelete
