I am a huge fan of bright, bold colors, which really is no secret. In my opinion, the brighter the better! I was looking through our stash of embroidery floss the other day and noticed some seriously bright floss. Like a moth to a flame, I was totally drawn to them!
I started brainstorming ideas on how to use my colorful floss and was thinking I would maybe embroider a bag, or even embellish a fun felt coaster. As I thought about how I wanted to incorporate my floss, I decided I really just wanted to wear it. I basically just wanted to drape myself in color! Instead of literally wrapping my body in bright floss, I thought it would be best to tone it down a bit and incorporate floss into a necklace (this is way more socially acceptable!). I ended up going with a very simple necklace design. I took some dark wooden beads and strung them on some clear elastic cord. To add my "pop of color", I wanted to have brightly colored tassels dangling from my wooden bead necklace. I thought the floss would pair beautifully with my dark beads. Tassels are super easy to make and can be very addicting. Okay, you have been warned! What I love about this necklace is it can be paired with a white t-shirt or even a plain black maxi dress for a dramatic impact. This is why I love statement necklaces; they can jazz up any plain outfit!
What colors of embroidery floss would you use with your wooden beads? Would you stick with one color or do multiple colors like I did?
