I’m not a huge jewelry fan, never have been.
But lately I’ve found myself liking some of the new styles and taking a little more interest in accessorizing.

I knew as soon as I saw this post that I wanted one of these pretty little necklaces and I finally sat down this weekend and made a couple.
I even did my own tutorial in case you want to try it out for yourself.

Here’s what you’ll need:

fabric (I used one of Susannah’s outgrown t-shirts)
hot glue gun
round charm and chain (found one at a thrift store for ten cents…and they probably thought I was weird for buying it since it had a picture of someone else’s kid in it)

Step 1:
Use the charm to trace circles on your fabric. They don’t need to be precise or perfect.

Cut them out on the inside of the pen markings.
I cut 10-12 circles out.

Pinch the circle at the center and glue down to charm, starting at the center.

Repeat until the charm is covered. Trim any long or oddly placed pieces.

Pretty cute, right?

This one is a tiny bit bigger than I’d have liked but I still like how it turned out. Now I just need to find some more charms so I can make more colors. :)
