My daughter recently found several necklaces on Pinterest with 398.2, which represents Fairy Tales in the Dewey Decimal system. She has always been a big fan of these stories, but has a renewed interest from her favorite show, Once Upon A Time.
I was able to make this necklace for under $6! All the supplies were purchased at Hobby Lobby on sale.
- Pendant- I used this mini mirror pendant from the Fairy Tale collection. It had a removable back and worked perfectly.
- Chain necklace
- Jump ring
- Vellum paper- Mine, shown below, had a pattern, but you could use something clearer to show the mirror more.
The first step is to print out 398.2 on your paper. I used several fonts, colors, and sizes, ending up with a printed page full of choices. I also traced over the font with a blue colored pencil to darken it a little.
Remove the mirror from the pendant and trace it over the number on your paper. Cut out the number, place it over the mirror, and seal in the back of the pendant.
Attach the chain necklace to the pendant with the jump ring.
This is a fun, easy to make, and economical gift for girls of all ages who love the magic of Fairy Tales!
UPDATE: I gave this to my daughter last night for an early Valentine’s Day gift and she loved it! When I came to add this update, I saw her cute comment below with the screen name Candace’s Favorite Child :). Here is the picture she took wearing the necklace that she posted on her social media accounts:
