Alright, so the 6-for-a-buck compasses from the party favors section of the dollar store aren’t the most accurate.  But then again, what do you expect for 16 cents apiece?  While they might not be the most practical purchase, they can still make a fashion statement!  Stephanie at Henry Happened figured out a quick and easy method for turning them into necklaces, which would be perfect as favors at an outdoor-themed party or as a sleepover activity.  (Heck, they’re even cute enough for kitsch-loving adults to wear!)  [how to make a kids compass necklace]

Project estimate:
