If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen this necklace pop up a lot lately. I wanted one for awhile, but found the retail cost to be more than I wanted to spend. For instance, there’s one available on NASTYGAL.COM for nearly $40! Adorable? Yes, of course. But, worth the money? Meh. Instead of spending the money, I thought this would be a great DIY opportunity. It only takes about five minutes and will cost you only $5! Here are the instructions to how I made mine. Plus – I’ll be giving this exact necklace away on Instagram! Make sure to check out my page for simple steps on how to win it. It’s a small gesture to say thank you to everyone checking out The Nomis Niche. I really appreciate you all!
- Black faux leather suede beading cord
- Two beads for the end
Cut the cord your desired length. For me, it was the length of my forearm when folded in half twice. (It ended up being about 60 inches long.)
Grab your beads. I found these at our local Hobby Lobby and they worked great. You can pick anything you like really. I made another necklace with ivory colored beads on the end too.
Trim the cord just a little bit to make sure you can easily get it through the bead. Make the end into a point instead of a square edge.
Thread your beads through. After you have a bead at each end – tie a knot to keep them in place!
Clean up the ends by trimming off the excess. Now you’re ready to wear it!
