I love playing with Barbies! For me the absolute best part has always been the miniature accessories! I have a whole box of tiny bits and bobs that I package together with a Barbie gift. I love including them in my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. I’ve collected or made purses, little books, umbrellas, ribbons, shoes, flowers, etc. But today I’ll show you the EASIEST way to make a Glittery Barbie necklace! It’s a simple DIY!
How to Make this EASY Barbie Necklace:
When I was planning my daughter’s wedding shower, I checked the “favor” and “party” sections of every single dollar-type store in town. I ended up discovering the most interesting little miniatures that could be used for fashion dolls accessories.
They were so PERFECT for Barbie use! I found some Baby Shower favors Like these:
For the necklaces I used “baby bracelets” I got at Dollar Tree.
About 16 to a package for $1. They resemble the bracelets babies used a great many years ago with their names in alphabet beads. Both my kids had regular plastic strip name bracelets from the hospital, but my own mom did save my baby bead bracelet – over 60 years ago! Gasp!
UPDATE – it appears that Dollar Tree no longer carries these same plastic doll beads. You might be able to find them in another type of $ store. My point was that look closely at items and see what can be easily repurposed into fun items for dolls. I was able to find a great pack of accessories including necklaces for fashion dolls HERE
Anyway! On one side you can barely see the slightly raised letters that say B A B Y. The other side is smooth. I hot glued sequins onto the raised letters to hide them. Voila! That’s it! Done! Complete! It can’t get easier than that! Glamorous and fun Barbie necklace (and inexpensive!) They fit easily around the doll’s neck and they stay on!

These are some dresses – they make my upcycled fashion dolls rather glamorous. The lace might run only on the front (each pack is different), but with lace, ribbons and other details – they are nicer than I could have made!
Here is another group of dresses that comes with shoes.
