DIY Vintage Tag Necklace

Howdy kids :]

So the other day, I managed to re-purpose/whip up a fun little necklace that I am absolutely adoring:

Vintage Tag Necklace

It all started out with a trip to this tiny little town about 20 minutes from where I live [Let's be honest- everything is at least 20 minutes away from where I am living right now...].

I was planning on buying some old coins [which I did anyway haha] for a project that I'm thinking of making, when I ran across this old tag. I have no idea what it is from... but it reminds my mother of the old tags that they used to have on pool lockers from back in the day. Does anyone have any idea of what it could be? Regardless, I thought it was too fantastic to leave behind--

And it was literally the simplest thing ever to turn it into a necklace. All I did was break out some pliers [please excuse the fact that mine are part of a Swiss army knife...] and attach a thick jump ring to the tag. And there we have it! Just 30 seconds and you have a fabulous new necklace from an unexpected object.

All I did to complete the necklace was put it on a long silver chain. I love the mix of metals :]
And as weird as it sounds, I think I want to make necklaces out of other weird tags now... Like my cat's old rabies tags. JUDGE ME.


Happy Tuesday kids :]
