I found some cute napkins with an adorable chicken print! I love repurposing napkins…they are an unexpected craft supply.
The chickens are so cute and colorful, I couldn’t resist purchasing them to make the necklace and earrings and who knows what else will pop into my mind one of these days!
When I decided to make the red chicken earrings, I needed to scan the napkin print into my computer to make a reverse image so the earrings would match. I used copper head pins with bright yellow seed beads to fashion whimsical legs for the birds.
I have a whole collection of the glazed napkin chickens and it will be fun to dream up some new projects using them. The thick glaze makes them have some weight so I can use them as charms.
