I realized this week that I have waaaaaaaay too much crafting, jewellery making, paper, decoupaging, card making, sewing, and fabric stuff. So, I'm on a supplies diet and am only allowed to use things I already have, make things I've been meaning to make, and finish projects I started and haven't completed. I'm not sure how long this will last, but I had these chains just sitting in a jewellery box doing nothing so I decided to make them into something wearable.
Here's what you need for this super easy project:
-Wire cutters, scissors
-Fray check, thread, sewing machine
1) Cut your chains to the size you want, taking off any extra hooks or clasps that you don't need.
2) Apply some fray check to the end of your ribbon. When it's dry, thread it into the last link in each of your chains and fold behind.
3) Simply stitch it down and repeat on the other side.
Cut your ribbon to a length that will sit nicely and allow enough in the back to tie. You can adjust the necklace so that the ribbon closure is on the side for something a little more precious and whimsical.
|Trying to look thoughtful, but really
my energy is just fading fast~
I'm not sure if I like how long it is, to be honest with you. I might cut the chains in half so that there are four shorter ones instead of just the two. But I think I'll wait until I'm more myself before I decide.
Have you ever put yourself on a supply diet? How successful were you? Leave a comment below, I need all the inspiration and self-control I can get....especially with Boxing Day sales coming up soon!
