All these years of making DIY projects I felt many times like a treasure hunter. I kept every small piece of fabric, bead and many other materials. Of course, I kept a lot of buttons. I opened my sewing box and found this treasure. Shapes and colors started to fuel my imagination."It's time for a necklace", I thought and immediately started working my project. Find your hidden treasures and start now!
You need buttons, pliers, thick thread (for the tassels), wire and small loops. You can use a chain as i did but also a ribbon will do.
Bend the wire in the shape of a smile! Secure the one side of the wire so that the buttons won't fall. Start passing the buttons through the wire.
Once you finish, you will have this result, so now you can secure the other side too. Use one loop and join the chain in both sides.
Using three fingers pass along the thread making circles and start the tassel. After some circles release the thread from your fingers and pass a piece of thread to secure the one side. Turn and press the upper side of the tassel and with a knot you will make the "head" of the tassel.
Cut the other side of the tassel in order to create the fringe. Using the loops make a small chain (I used 5 loops) to hang the tassel on the necklace. That’s it! You’re done!
I think it turned out pretty and elegant! I will enjoy wearing it all summer long with my t-shirts and dresses!
