Hi, Helen here from Curly Birds with my first ‘official’ post on The Twinery. I have to say, I love how versatile this twine is – so easy to crochet, tie and play with. And the colors are beautiful and vibrant.
For my craft today, I made a pretty spring necklace for a pretty girl in a pretty spring dress. And you can too…
Twine – of course! I used 20” of Pink Sorbet
Wooden beads – I used ten 5/8” and three 3/4”
2 Coffee mugs
Step 1: Cut an 8” strand of twine, thread the needle and
put three 3/4" beads onto the twine.
Step 2: Tie the twine between two coffee mugs so you can easily paint the beads without putting finger prints on them.
Step 3: Let the beads dry.
Step 4: Cut a 10" strand of twine, thread the needle, string your beads onto the twine – I used seven 5/8" beads, the three painted 3/4" beads and then three more 5/8" beads.
Note: Measure your twine to make sure it will fit over the
lucky recipient’s head!
Step 5: Tie a knot in the back.
Step 6: Give. Wear. Feel pretty.
Thanks for visiting The Twinery today –
I look forward to lots more crafts together! Helen
