Domino necklace

We attended a birthday party over the weekend, which, for me, meant some last-minute crafting. This time I put together a domino necklace for our 5-year old friend Danielle.
I had been meaning to experiment with old game pieces as necklaces after seeing Scrabble tile pendants (links at bottom), but hadn't gotten around to it. Nothing like a deadline to get me going.
For this necklace, I glued an old lettered game piece (specifically chosen for the birthday girl) to the top half of a domino, leaving exposed the number 5. I coated the letter with Mod Podge and the number with Diamond Glaze. I super glued a jewelry bail with jump ring to the top and slid a little leathery rope necklace through. Pretty simple.
I was pleased, and am excited about experimenting further. I'll be sure to post when I get around to making something new.

Oh yeah, I made the box, too, using this tutorial:

So cute! I have a 4 year old that is obsessed with her age. I just started making the scrabble pendants with the same tut. I will have to try this one out too. Thanks!

That is, as Amy said, the BEST! I want one! But to do my age, you're gonna need a lot more dominoes.
