You probably have everything you need for this DIY lying around the house. I’ve been laid up trying to recover from a cold-turned-sinus infection. I was able to easily complete this while “resting” in bed.
Imagine all the potential combos!
The second item I plan to have in tow to San Francisco is my new Ruffled Tie Necklace! I saw this idea in my SewStylish magazine, Spring 2011. The idea behind this creative and stylish necklace is Autumn Davidson who blogs about her creations and sells on Etsy! Necklaces aren’t the only things she creates… I love her bridal bouquets!
I started with a men’s tie, a Goodwill find for only $1.99, and pulled other fabric scraps I had in a bin. I bought a chain and closure at WalMart and used beads and buttons that I had on hand. You can buy beads from Joann’s, Walmart, Michael’s… anywhere really. I happen to have a son who LOVES to pull on my necklaces and break them. I don’t get mad… it gives me a chance to re-purpose the beads and such for a new creation, like this one!
It was a fun project and I am in the process of making one more. Thanks to Autumn Davidson for her awesome necklace idea!
