I am and always will be a kid at heart.  I still adore anything related to princesses or Disney.  I will, on any random evening, watch a Disney movie while drinking Yoo-hoo!

But I digress…

If you have been a reader for a while, you know I used to run a handmade jewelry Etsy shop (and still have a few items available if you are interested). Since redirecting my energy towards Gallymogger, I find myself still wanting to create fun and whimsical jewelry every once in a while.

On that note, let me present my latest silly creation…the fairy dust necklace!

Here is what you will need:

small glass vial (I found mine here)


eye hook

necklace chain

jump ring (if necessary)


1.  Create a funnel with a piece of paper and pour glitter in the vial about 3/4 full.

2.  Screw the eye hook into the cork

3. Cork the bottle (add a dab of heavy-duty glue if you are inclined)

4. Either thread the necklace chain, or use pliers to open the jump ring and connect the necklace that way.

5. Make a wish and get ready to look adorable!

All in all this is a very inexpensive project that makes a great looking gift!
