DIY — Lace Necklace

It has been way too long since I have been able to make something to share.

I found a couple of place mats at a thrift store over the weekend and decided to use the lace from one end to make a necklace.  Here’s how I did it.  It was quite easy.

First cut out the lace.

I cut out the whole piece and then trimmed it down from there.  I then sprayed it with a little heavy starch and ironed it before continuing with the process.

Thread a jump ring in to the lace on each side.  (This was taken before I decided I wanted the lace turned the other way)

Next, add a piece of chain.  Any length that you choose will work.

Add another jump ring to the other end of the chain.  This is where you will attach half of your clasp.

Secure your clasp and it’s ready to where!

Let me know if you have any questions!  I would love to see pictures if you make one.  I’m sure this concept would work well with any kind of heavier lace or fabric!

Ross wants to say hello too:

I started moving things out of my apartment yesterday and snapped a couple of pictures of him as I was leaving.

Thanks for reading!
