Altered Dominos

I decided to try something that I have been seeing a lot of lately. My altered dominos will be made into magnets. I would love to make some into necklaces but other than drilling holes through them, I don't know how to do that. I have seen them done others done with a clasp type thing but I am not sure what it is I need to be looking for.  If anyone knows, I would love it if you would leave me the info in the comments. 

The first three are all done with Ranger alcohol inks and then were stamped with black Staz On and then I went around the edge with a gold pen. The stamp set is from Clear Dollar Stamps. The second was done using Copic refill (B01) and the pearl additive from the Ranger line. After I got it the color I wanted it, I embossed it with white embossing powder and edges it with the silver pen. The snowman is from a Studio G set. 

Isn't this sweet? My hubby brought it home to me the other day. I love fresh pineapple!

Hey Gina, if you don't want to drill the hole and wire it onto a chain then look for spacer beads and they are just glued onto the dominoe. I may have info on how to go about wiring this on my blog but it has been so long since I have looked at the jewelry post, I am not sure. Anyway, you live too far away or I would show you in person.
nice work BTW! I contemplated doing this at one time but just haven't tried it yet.

Wow, those are amazing! I think even the clips clip through, so you do need to drill. It is easy with a dremmel. My friends drill sea glass here and I would think that is more fragile.

I love your bouquet! So much better than real flowers!

Very cool Dominos. I like that project a lot. You can add magnets to the back for the fridge....just a thought.

That edible bouquet looks tasty and beautiful. Your hubby is thoughtful.

Merry Christmas,
