Kentucky Derby Treats for Meals on Wheels

I made some horse necklaces for a Meals on Wheels Kentucky Derby treat. This year the Kentucky Derby is on May 7th.

Supply List:

Small plastic horses

Small flowers

Glue gun/glue sticks

Exacto knife

Screw eyes

Thin ribbon


I bought my horses from Oriental Trading Company because I needed to make 50 necklaces. But they sell the horses in the tubes at any craft or party store - they tubes have 8 horses and are about $10. Be sure to use a craft store coupon.

Using an exacto knife twist a small hole and then twist in the screw eye.

I bought the screw eyes in the wood section of Hobby Lobby.

I also hot glued a little flower onto each horse.

I also found the little flowers at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section.

Now the horses are ready for a long piece of ribbon or twine to make  a necklace. 

I apologize for the photography - I made these late at night!
