But that shopping ban doesn't carry over to craft stores... and so it's a perfect time to finally make some of the necklaces I've been planning for a while as new accessories are handy in putting together interesting new outfits.
My inspiration (I hope not plagiarism - but this blog is COPY-craft) for this one is from these absolutely adorable necklaces from Etsy seller ulala. I almost bought one of hers, except for the aforementioned shopping ban - plus I had several of the supplies on hand already, so I thought I'd try my own.
- Suede scrap (got this one in jewelry aisle at Michaels)
- Bow template (got mine by doing a Google image search for "bow silhouette")
- Scissors/hole punch
- Jump rings
- Wire cutters
Attach a jump ring (these just twist open pretty easily with your fingers, if you haven't used them before) to each hole along with the piece of chain and close the ring. Attach a jump ring to the other end of both chain pieces as well, and add the clasp to one of them before closing.
And that's it!
