I saw this necklace at Free People for $458.....I'm sorry but who in their right mind pays $458 for a trendy arrow necklace. I mean it's awesome, but I mourn the sugar daddy that has to foot that bill, ya know! Yell "HERE HERE!" if you agree. HERE HEEEEERE! So anyways, as my usual cheap self, I came up with a $10 version of it. I'm sorry Free People, it just had to be done.
- A necklace chain (I used an old one)
-Some bakeable modeling clay.
-Some jewelry making loopy things (see #3)
- gold spray paint (I used some I already had)
- An exacto knife (is that how you spell exacto I wonder?)
- parchment paper
1. Roll out the modeling clay on parchment paper and carve out the arrow shape above (I drew on the clay with sharpie first and then carved it out), then using a bobby pin or the exacto knife poke two holes on each side of the arrow ends (this will make it so you can attach the necklace to a chain). Then bake the arrow in the oven (still on the parchment paper) at 225 degrees for 25 minutes.
2. Let the arrow cool and then spray paint it.
3. Using the gold loops stick one loop through the holes at the top of the arrow. Do this on each side.
4. Attach the gold loops to the ends of the necklace chain.
Bam you just saved $448, now do one of those evil laughs like you just stuck it to the man....because you did.
