I've loved Anthropologie for a long time because they provide me with an endless source of inspiration.  Feeling uncreative?  Spend ten minutes surfing their website and you'll be cured.  Earlier this year I had the opportunity to set foot in one of their brick and mortar locations for the first time and it was even more incredible!  While Anthro's "party animal" necklace set isn't too steeply priced at $38 each, Beverly from Flamingo Toes knew that she could create an inspired necklace for cheaper.  Her necklaces look so much like the originals that you'll have trouble telling the difference, and you can whip them up at a fraction of the cost!  [how to make an Anthro-inspired party animal necklace]

Project estimate: 

  • Toy animals, $1
  • Embellishments, on hand or $1 and up
  • Jewelry findings, on hand or $1
  • Chain, on hand or $1
  • Glue, on hand

Total:  $1 and up

    @ buggalcrafts, I haven’t been to Anthropologie’s website either so don’t feel bad. I like these but I don’t think I could pull off this look.

    This is really interesting. I think I would prefer making these kinds of things than actually wearing them.

    I absolutely adore these necklaces…I can think of all kinds of things to do with these… Give them to kids at a birthday party as favors or for prizes…you could wear them at Halloween, if you are not daring enough to wear anytime…you could decorate with them! I love fun, whimsical pieces of jewelry hanging within frames on my wall and I think these just made the hit list..I also do magnets out of vintage brooches and clip on earrings…so cute!!!
