but not the budget!
For those of you who have followed my blog for a while you may remember that I made a replica of the infamous BBQ dress that Scarlett wore in GWTW.
Today I decided to make the coral necklace that Scarlett wore with the dress.
I went to the annual jewelry sale at The Red Door thrift shop this morning and found several coral colored beaded necklaces and earrings to use for the project.
I studied the necklace carefully (I surfed the Internet and watched the movie again:) and although the one I made is not an exact copy I think it is a good replica.
I took apart the beaded necklaces and earrings and reconfigured them into the florettes seen on the orignial necklace.
Then I added the chain with swags.
The original has three chains but I went with two.
And here is the finished project.
For about $4 I was able to create a pretty good replica of the necklace Scarlett wore to the BBQ at Twelve Oaks.
I will be working on the hat this week and will post pictures when it is complete:).
Until then, don't let your budget be gone with the wind-find creative ways to achieve the same impact without spending a fortune.
