DIY Crochet Supply Necklace!
Get ready for Spring with a brightly colored necklace! You can start the transition from dark reds, oranges, and greens with this poppy yellow and mint green necklace!
This DIY necklace is actually made out of crochet supplies! The string is C&C Aunt Lydias Classic Crochet Thread. There are SO many bright cheery colors to choose from. The yellow and mint green really spoke to me. They said "make a necklace out of me." So, naturally, I listened!
I took my cheery thread and wrapped it around Boye Yarn Accessories Cabone Rings. There are so many projects were you could incorporate the cabone rings. Typically people use them for crocheted buttons, jewelry, cafe curtains, Roman shades, and more. You know I always love thinking outside the box, so I wrapped my crochet thread around my rings and added tassels to complete the look of my necklace.
Here's what you'll need:
- Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread (Mint Green)
- Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread (Maize)
- Boye Yarn Accessories Cabone Rings (2 Inch)
- Boye Yarn Accessories Cabone Rings (1 Inch)
- Jewelry Wire
- Jewelry Chain (mine was 15mm) 24 inches long
- 2 Jump Rings (10mm)
- Chain Nose Pliers
Let's get crafty!
Step 1: Cut a piece of thread that is 3 yards to wrap around your 2 inch ring and 1 1/2 yards to wrap around your 1 inch rings. Wrap your thread around your rings and tie a knot. Leave a little tail at the end. Keep wrapping your ring with thread. You want to make sure each pass of thread is right next to the prior. This takes a little bit of time to complete. It's a great project to do while you watch TV!
Step 2: Open up 3 links of chain and use them to connect all three of your rings. Once they are all attached, they should look like Mickey Mouse. ;)
Step 2: Take your other thread and wrap it around your two fingers 25 times.
Step 4: Slide your jump ring under one end of your thread and close.
Step 5: Cut another piece of thread and wrap it around your other thread under your jump ring 10 times, then tie a knot. You will want a total of 3 tassels.
Step 6: Open 3 links of your chain. Run your links through your jump rings. Then, connect your tassels to each of your rings.
Step 7: Then, hold the threads on each tassel and trim them.
Step 8: Open up the last 2 links of your chain and connect each link to one of your smaller circles.
