DIY: Thread and Heart Necklace


This is a simple DIY necklace I made the other day..
You can use any trinket or locket you have,the heart is from a broken chain!




You will need:

1)Hair Pin- Golden or Bronze

2)Three Colours of embroidery floss or thread

3)A pendant of your choice!










Bend the pin open with a pliers, and also bend its edges outwards as shown in (2).

Cut the threads slightly longer then the length required to go around your head..I used a double strand of each colour..

Braid the threads for a small length(4), and then simply knot them at regular intervals(5)!

Attach thee thread-braid at the pin-end and secure with fabric glue(6)!

I kind of made this a bit carelessly, we want the end result to be slightly rustic looking..



How did you like this DIY? Its simple, right? And I think it would go amazingly well with a nautical look-maybe you can substitute an anchor pendant for the heart?

And ooh. Before I forget! You can find me today at http://m-scribbles.blogspot.in/2012/08/long-day.html I wrote a guest poem on her blog! She is a dear friend of mine!:)

Love,
Shubhi!
