DIY Statement Necklace

DIY Statement Necklace 2

 

Hey my lovelies,

Its been such a long time. I’ve had a creative block for a while now (how long is it supposed to last cos its killing me?) and I’m trying to get our of it. To compensate for my long silence, I’m going to share a necklace I made a while back and then share another quick project tomorrow.

Without further ado, here goes;

 

What You’ll Need

  • Felt
  • Shiny multicolored embroidery thread
  • Chain
  • Cord (I used an old rope cord form a flea market)
  • Glue (preferably E6000)

 

Instructions

DIY Statement Necklace 2

1. Braid the thread and secure at both ends with wire (use your preferred measurement. I just eyeballed it).

2. Arrange theย  cord, braided thread and chain on the felt in the pattern you like. At first, I was only going to use cord and thread and only decided to use the chain afterwards.

3. Draw out the necklace pattern on the felt with a white chalk pencil using the cord, thread and chain as a guide.

4. Apply glue on the necklace pattern and arrange your materials as in 2. above.

5. Allow to dry for a long while. Cut out the excess felt.

6. Go rock your new statement necklace.

Hmmm, I feel a bit more motivated just writing this tutorial. I might try out some other materials pretty soon – pearls, stones, beads, etc. Please show me some comment love and tell me what you think. I’d like to hear from you; plus it will really motivate me to do more projects ๐Ÿ™‚

Like I said earlier, I’ll be sharing a really quick, fun project tomorrow. I’d like for you to come see it.

Have fun guys and have a great day.

 

Lots of love,

Omo

  1. That’s pretty awesome. I look at all the DIY jewelry out there and am amazed at how cool it all is, but can’t quite seem to pull off the job myself. This tutorial looks easy enough for even me to try it. I can’t wait to see some of your other ideas once the creative block dissolves. (Don’t you absolutely HATE that?)

    Good luck. Thanks for sharing with us at Shindig Saturday. I hope you’ll come again this Saturday and we can see more of your great ideas!
