Make a statement with a stunning piece of jewelry that doesn't cost a fortune. Is there such a thing? Yes! You really can have it all: sparkly jewels in your favorite colors, pretty ribbon, a necklace that fits you perfectly AND is super affordable. We'll show you how to make your own (hint: it's SUPER easy and NO TOOLS NEEDED). All you need is Aleene's® Mixed Media Adhesive and a little bit of creative brain power to make your own statement necklace that'll have all of your friends asking you to make one for them too! (You can send them to this blog post so they can learn how to make it themselves.)
- Flat-backed rhinestones and crystals (desired colors)
- Vinyl or suede fabric for backing (desired color)
- Ribbon for necklace ties
Gather all of your supplies and determine how large you would like your bib portion of the necklace to be. Measure if needed and mark off lightly with a pencil (if desired) on the vinyl fabric so you know the confines of your design area.
Lay out your jewels on the fabric to your liking. Get creative with your design motif! Once you are happy with it, use the Mixed Media Adhesive to glue the gems in place.
Let the gems completely dry before moving on to the next step. You don't want to mess up your beautiful motif!
Once dry, cut around the gems to create the bib of the necklace.
Cut two lengths of ribbon and glue one end of each ribbon to each end of bib. Let dry completely.
Your new statement necklace is ready to be adored by everyone who sees it!
