Valentine's Necklace Tute


I have found I am having so much fun making these washer necklaces.

I adored this one so much but I ruined it when I tried to drill through the ribbon.
So I made an even bigger one. LOL I'll show ya at the end.

First take the washer of your choice. And prep the Dremel with right bit.

I wanted ajump ring on mine so that's why I'm doing this. As you can see below
You do not have to drill a hole, you can just string it on ribbon.

Choose your ribbon and add your jump ring.

Then you start wrapping.

Then add a strip of Liquid stitch to hold the end down, trim if needed.

Here is what the two look like I worked on today.

I loved these cute hearts so I wanted to add some deminsion to it.

I sprayed it with a top coat to make sure the hearts stay in place.

I think I may have my very first giveaway with one of these cuties!!
Do you think I should?

Thanks for stoppin by. I hope you like 'em!

  9. D'you know, you're a better man than I, girl. I read this post with delight and totally plan on doing these pendants (my fabric of choice would be black lace which I have way too much of for some obscure reason!), but I just tiptoed out without having the decency to comment. I think your lovely, inspiring comment will serve as a proper kick up my backside in future! x
