This is the first of the DIY projects I will post. This necklace was a lot of fun to wear watching my favorite Hokies play. They sell these in the bookstore ranging in price up to $30. You can easily make your own for less and would make a great gift to add to the bridesmaids’ gift bags. All of the supplies I used were from Michaels.
– 1 bag of wooden beads
– 1 bag of silver or metal beads
– clear coating to seal it
I won’t give any steps because it’s pretty obvious. Some tips though- string your beads between two dining room chairs and make the dots with a pencil tip. This makes it easy to take it from the strung chairs to outside to tie to finish off with the clear coating (mine was in an aerosol can- hence outside). If you have the paint already or can use it in the future you end up making this necklace for around $7 to $10.
