Doctor Who Tardis in a Bottle Necklace!

Make an adorable Tardis Necklace for yourself or a fellow Whovian!
It's easy and costs about $17 for 6.  (less than $3 each)

Here's what you'll need:
Tardis Blue oven bake clay (craft store for about $2)
White and Black paint (craft store about $2)
Bottle Charms with Corks ($6.50 for 6)
Ball chain or other chain for necklace ($6.25 for 6)

I got my Bottle charms from Oriental Trading Company
Remember...all orders over $49 ship free!
First use a knife to cut a rectangle of clay.
It's got to be narrow enough to fit inside the opening of the jar,
 so check it out and make changes as needed.
Then cut the top to make it the right height.

 Add a larger piece on top, followed by a smaller cube.
I used an x-acto knife to cute the "roof" shape.

 Add the lantern/light to the top.

I made 3.  Then baked them in the oven according 
to the package directions.
 After they cooled,
I used white paint and a tiny paint brush and painted on the details.

 Added the Police box...super carefully since it was so tiny!
and mixed some gray for some shadowing.

 Then I used some E6000 and skinny tweezers...

 Put a small dot of glue on the bottom of the Tardis,
 And used the tweezers to lower to the bottom of the jar.
Pressed in place and allowed to dry before corking!


 Added a ball chain!

Think of all the people you could make one for...
It's smaller on the outside.
