Yes. . . Another Necklace!

I know, I know! But yes. . . I have another necklace for you.
But cut me a break, its a really cute necklace!

So totally cute right?!
You'd never know it was made from a button.

Here's how I did it.
I got the button from WalMart.
First I clipped off the back of the button with some wire cutters.
Then I sanded it down more with a metal file.
Next I glued a bail to the back and let it dry for a few hours.
(No one will ever see the back of the necklace, but if you want it to look a little better of if its a little too scratchy against your skin you could always glue a little circle of felt or black fabric to the back.)

Then you have a cute new necklace pendant!
Just put it on a chain and you're done!
I ♥ it! Its my new favorite necklace!

Where do you find those bails on the back of your necklases? I've been wanting to make the wood square ones that you posted a few days back and can't find the bails anywhere!! ARG! My local Hobby Lobby and Michaels didn't carry them!

*Come on over - I'm hosting my first giveaway!*

I finally found the bails that go on the back of the necklaces! They're all the way across town - but at least I found some! Thanks for all the great ideas!
