Hi guys! First of all, happy valentine! As you guys know, I love crafting and making my own necklace. so, here it is, a simple and cute DIY washer necklace. you can make one for yourself or give it as a gift for your friends.
What will you need :
- Washers (any size will work)
- Scrapbook paper
- Micro tip scissors
- Craft glue or super glue
- Glossy Accents
- Nail file
- leather cord or ribbon
- Beads (optional but very cute)
- Waxed paper
How do you make it :
- Pick the size of washer you would like to use, and cut a piece of scrap paper slightly larger than your washer.
- Punch out the circle for the middle of the washer using a punch or tiny scissors.
- Place the washer on the back of your paper. Make sure your holes match up, and trace around the outside edge.
- Cut out your circle, and glue it to the top of the washer with some craft glue.
- After the glue is dry, take a nail file and sand down the edges of the paper. This will make the edge of the washer nice and smooth.
- add the glossy coat to your washer. Place your washer on a piece of waxed paper. Take the tip of the bottle and slowly squeeze a line of glaze around the very outside edge of the washer.
- Repeat for the inside ring of the circle. If your washer is small like mine, the lines of glaze will just blend together and cover the whole surface. Magic!
- Look closely at your washer and make sure there is no paper showing. If there is, use the tip of the bottle of the top coat to spread the glaze to those areas. You want it to be sealed well.
- Let the washer dry overnight. After it dries completely, it’s time to add the cord. I prefer to use leather cords.
- ut a piece of cord about 30″ long. Fold it in half and thread the loop through the center of the washer.
- Pull the loop around the two loose pieces on the side, and pull it tight.
- Last, all you have to do is tie a knot in the top of the cord. That’s it, you are finished! Wasn’t that easy?
This is the cutest and easiest DIY necklace that I ever made. I think you should give it a try. and if you guys have ideas for my next DIY post, just tell me in the comments!
