((handmade monday)) fringe necklace tutorial


Today, one of my sponsors, April from the Gingerbread blog, will be sharing how to make a super fun necklace! Enjoy & happy crafting!

Meet April:
I love to craft, create, cook and make big messes. I am always looking for a garage sale, recipe and new project I can start. Gingerbread is a place where I share all my crazy messes and big adventures.

Necklaces are my new earrings ever since my earlobes have decided to reject every pair of earrings I've tried to wear. So out with the ear candy and in with the neck candy! I crafted up this fringe necklace with only a few tools and materials and am lovin' the look.


You will need:
Two strips of fringe that are 10 inches long.
 Scissors
Link of chain (21 inches long)
 Hot glue gun
Lighter
Measuring tape


Cut your fringe and slightly singe the edges just enough to prevent fraying.


Using your hot glue fold over the ends of your fringe.


Then glue the end of your chain in between your fringe, squeeze together while your glue dries.


I placed a small drop of glue every inch or two between my fringe so they wouldn't separate when I wore it, but perhaps you like that look, it's up to you.


You're done! Wear your new neck candy with pride...earrings who?

  3. I so love these fringe necklaces and will be off to the local craft shop today to buy the bits I need. They look like great fun and will make good Christmas presents for my friends and family. I have a small blog myself where I display hand-made, unique jewellery. My latest project is using Fimo to create small baubles and figures and attaching these onto chains and pieces of leather to make funky necklaces and bracelets. They’re proving a real hit too!
