Enter this necklace DIY. In the spirit of my last post, I'm naming this the Easiest Necklace DIY. I promise you it is.
There are two main materials for this project:
1. A necklace
2. A a piece of trim.
That is all. The supplies you will need are:
1. Needle & Thread.
So simple. I had a rogue scrap of pink fringe trim lying around for about 10 years. 10 YEARS. I took a necklace I bought on sale for $6 from Jcpenney and just sewed it onto the trim. <---That was the DIY. I must admit I did spray paint the necklace gold, though, because the silvertone wasn't doing it for me.
So the directions are:
1. Trim the trim (punny ha ha) to the desired length. I made mine sort of half the necklace chain length. All depends on how much you want it to look like a collar.
2. Position the necklace on top of the trim and sew it on. I sewed mine in four spots. At the ends of the trim, and at two points toward the center. Again, this is customizable--it all depends on how you want to necklace to fall. I wanted more of a layered look, but if you wanted it to be a full-on collar, you can sew the trim and necklace together the whole way.
Aw, shucks, you want to see me wear it? Don't mind if I do...
And for bonuses, here are some snapshots from my weekend, dogsitting Ziggy, enjoying the 70 degree weather, and having an indoor cookout.
