My goodness this week has flown past!
In winter I tend to wear dark colours - black, grey and more black. It's nice though to brighten up with a little spalsh of colour. Todays little DIY is a simple and really inexpensive project to brighten your wardrobe.
Firstly let's gather some supplies. Bead goodies are readily available in lots of discount stores. I found the bead elastic for $2 a roll. while I do like to make "real" necklaces with proper closures, these ones on elastic are super easy for a change.
You need a clip of some description to make the threading easy.
Grab a necklace length that you like and measure out some elastic with a little extra for knotting.
Decide on a pattern for your necklace. I have one of these neat bead boards but you can make do without one easily too.
Pop the clip on one end and start threading.
Once finished tie your ends together with a double or triple knot. I also add a dollop of craft glue to ensure it stays together - but that's optional.
and ta da you now have a pretty spash of colour .
