diy ombré wrapped necklace

July 23, 2011

Here’s a fairly easy DIY for a colorful, summer necklace ♥

  • Twine
  • 3 (or more) different colors of ombré embroidery floss
  • Needle nose (or jewelry) pliers
  • Spring cord ends 
  • Chain closure for back of necklace
[Step 1: Tie the embroidery floss in a tight double knot around the twine]
[Step 2: Start wrapping the floss around the twine]
[Keep the wraps close together so there are no spaces where the twine is visible]
[Step 3: Here is the first finished strand. The multicolor floss creates an ombré effect. Use a small amount of craft glue at the ends to prevent fraying and unraveling. Let dry.]
[Step 4: Attach the Spring Cord Ends. Feed the end of floss through it. Twist the Spring Cords down, occasionally pull on the end of floss to help it along. Cut off the extra end floss when done]
[Here is the attached Spring Cord End. Repeat on other end.]
[Step 5: Attach closure using pliers]
[Step 6: Make a few more strands and use pliers to attach them to links in the chain]

    I did something similar to this on a belt buckle because I didn't like the patina… I should do a DIY on it… I love colored string. I always wear a diamond pendant on them b/c it's the perfect mix of high and low… LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair in this series btw!!
