Mickey Mouse Necklace

This necklace just made me so happy the whole time I was working on it!


Maybe you've already guessed what it's made out of.



Paint samples! I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw these in Home Depot last week!



I'm going back today to get more, but I started with this pink one.



I used my littlest circle punch and cut out Mickey.



I Mod-Podged him on a silver jewelry bail.



Of course, I added Dimensional Magic and could hardly stand waiting the day for it to dry.



Oh how I love Mickey!!

You better run, don't walk, to your nearest Home Depot. I'm taking Greg back with me today so he can distract the paint guy while I roll the whole display out to the car!

I'll be linking up Here this week.

This is fantastic! What a simple, but great idea. Where did you get the bails? I never seem to be able to find good ones at the craft stores. TFS! By the way, found you through inspiring creations linky.
