DIY (37) – Friendship Necklace

Hi everyone!!!

Don’t you think these friendship bracelet-like necklaces are awesome?

I promise that they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 37

FRIENDSHIP NECKLACE

materials:

cotton rope or twine – a pair of scissors – nuts and washers – embroidery thread – thread bobbins or squares of cardboard (all of which you can find at your local hardware and craft store)

To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin.  Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slackTape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?).  Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut.  Take the active color (shown here in red) in your right hand, pass it over the rope, loop it under and back through the opening.  Pull up and to the right to tighten.  Repeat the knots until you are ready to switch colors. 

To alternate colors, simply put the inactive color (red) in your left hand and the new active color (purple) in your right.  Repeat the steps.

Once you’re done knotting, add a few nuts and/or washers to the necklace.  Undo the large starter knot and tie both open ends together, creating your very own friendship necklace!  

Trim any extra rope and tread.  Continue making necklaces at different lengths, using any color combination…in our opinion, the more the better!  Easy enough, right??
