I had seen in a very expensive shop something like this, i loved it, but i hadn't the money to buy it. So i thought i can make one my self.
In a shop of theatre stuff a bought this mice.( but mayby you can buy these mice too in a toy shop, i haven't found them but you don't now for sure) and because they where boring grey coloured i thought i pimp them up to date.
So with a little paint a some rhinestones and a ribbon, they where adorable. so i thought mayby you like them too? I hope so!
When i had made the mice necklace i wasn't a member yet, so i hadn't make pictures for the tute , but i have chosen some parts of the picts so that you can see what i mean. I hope its working for you too!:-)
and i've you have questions don't be shy:-)
The mice where cheap and the other things i had in house, so it was much cheaper then buy it, i love mine more then the real necklace. Of course you can use other shapes of toys as well!
joy the crafting!
collect your materials you will use.
with the tinny bruch make the mice ears, noses and toes and tails pink. and let it dry.
begin with threading the necklace,
tie a knot in the thread and threading a crimping beat on the thread. At first threads 6 little beads on.
Then a big pink bead and then a small one and repeat this 6 times. so you end with a small bead.
See the pict, but klick on it, so you can see what i mean.
pick up the first mouse and hold his belly to the upper side.
stab the needle trough his paw and take a little fake pearl bead on the thread and stab twith the needle in the same hole back.
threading 6 little beads on your necklace thread and do with te other paw the same.
See my pic.
You must threading first a small bead and then a big pink on your chain and repeat it two time and ends with a little bead and take the next mouse.
The seccond mouse : thread the mouse on the chain in the same way as written in step 4
and repeat this 5 times more, so you have 7 mice on your necklace dangling.
thread a small bead and a big pinkbead and reapeat this 6 times and pick up a crimping bead and tie a knot and thread throug three or four beads , and glue off the the thread and the tie.skimp the crimping beads sealed.
cut of the thread.
put on the crimping beads the closure, The chain is finished of threading, now only the finishing touch!
glue on every mouse round their necks a row tiny fake rhinestones in one colour.
glue on every mouse fake rhinestones on their eyes.
see pic on step 10:-)
make with the ribbon 7 tinny bows for their tails and glue them on their tails. Yust like the pict.
with varnish brush (or clear nailpolish) a layer on the rihnstones and the paint of every mous. To make them a bit durable!
and then when it is dry off, your finished!
