Funky Lizard Toy Necklace
 

Materials:

  • Monofilament Multi-Purpose Line (Clear)
  • Plastic Lizards
  • Needle
  • Crimping Beads
  • Clasp
  • Crimping Tool
  • Spray Paint
  • Gloss Sealer Spray
  • Scissors
  • Pliers

 

Instructions:

  1. Using your scissors cut the monofilament multi-purpose line to desired length.
     
  2. Carefully thread the line through the needle.


     
  3. Carefully push the threaded needle through the neck of the plastic lizard. Use pliers if needed.


     
  4. Continue to thread the lizards onto the line (until you have reached desired number).
     
  5. In a well-ventilated area, apply an even coat of spray paint to the necklace. Let it dry completely.


     
  6. Turn the necklace over and repeat the step on the opposite side. Make sure to apply an even coat onto the sides of the lizards.
     
  7. Once both sides have dried, completely apply an even coat of gloss sealer. Let it dry completely.
     
  8. Attach the clasp to your necklace by threading one crimping bead onto the line, then thread on one side of the clasp.
     
  9. Next thread the line back through the crimping bead only.


     
  10. Take the crimping tool and crimp bead into place. Cut off excess line close to the crimping bead.
     
  11. Repeat the same steps on the opposite side of the necklace
