‘Let It Be’ Necklace

October 30, 2014

I saw a pin on pinterest on how to make your own necklace.

I was inspired to try and create my own jewelry and it turned out pretty neat!

 

I will walk you through what I did to create this necklace and you will not believe how easy it is!

 

 

 

You’ll need:

  • Square Pendant Bezel (I used My Jewelry Shoppe brand from Hobby Lobby)
  • Package of clear square inserts for the Bezel (My Jewelry Shoppe)
  • Necklace chain
  • Something to put into the necklace
  • Glue (Make sure it’s clear and acid-free when using photos)

 

 

First thing, figure out what you want in the necklace. I decided to type up the words “Let It Be” and added some hummingbird clipart. You can use book pages, photos, whatever!

Then, I placed the clear square insert onto the paper and traced it with a pencil.

Next, I cut out the paper and placed it into the Pendant Bezel.

Then, I spread a thin layer of glue on paper and the pendant bezel piece, then placed the clear square insert into the pendant bezel. I didn’t realize my glue was white when wet but dries clear; so, I would recommend finding a clear glue to work with.

Just let it set overnight and you are done!

An Easy Clothespin Wreath

October 20, 2014

I had previously written a tutorial on my clothespin on an old site but since it is no longer active, I thought it would be best to get it on here.

What you’ll need:

  • Clothespins
  • Metal wire wreath

Place one clothespin on the most inner ring of the wreath. Like so…

Then place the second clothespin next to it but on the next ring…

Now, place the next clothespin on the most inner ring again…

And repeat…

That’s it! Super easy and cheap! If you want something with more color or personality you can always paint the wire wreath or the clothespins, add ribbons, etc.

Now, just hang it up and enjoy!

Happy Crafting!
