Today we are going to be making something I have wanted for a really long time.
- Embroidery Floss
- Felt Roving
- 2 Headpins
- Assorted Pins
- 2 Jump rings
- A Thimble
- A Necklace chain
- Wire clippers/Mini Pliers
- Hot Glue/ And Or E6000
|A little lumpy but not bad!|
Step 2: Cut about 4 inches of embroidery floss. Wrap it around your ball so the lines intersect like so. You can tie it off at the bottom, pulling a little snugly will create a nice rounded sections
Step 3: Cut your head pins down to the height of your thimble. You want just the head to peek out over the rim.
Step 4/5: Apply glue around the inside of the thimble, just a centimeter or so down from the rim.
If you use hot glue: Place your needle felted ball in quickly so you'll have the most time to fix any mistakes as the glue will dry quickly. Then put pins in it!
Step 6: Using your wire cutters, snip the link in the very center of your necklace, making it pendent ready! If you can't find the exact center just make sure that you even up the number of links on both sides.
Step 7: Using the jump rings connect the ends of your necklace chain to the headpins in your thimble. Repeat with the other side. You now have a cute, crafty, functional necklace.
I would pin that.
...I have been watching too much MDK. The puns are just word-vomiting out.
