Happy February, everyone! I thought I'd kick off the month with a quick little valentine's day-inspired DIY. It's quick, easy, and best of all - just a little bit nerdy. Here's how to make your very own "<3" necklace.
What you'll need:
- STURDY scrapbooking letters and numbers. Particularly just the "V" and the "3." You don't need the whole set. But don't get plain paper ones - something with clear plastic backing is best.
- Necklace chain and hoops
- Glossy Mod Podge and a paintbrush
- Safety pin
Start out by cutting the V and 3 out of the plastic, but leave the backing on and leave the plastic on the "inside parts" of the V and 3 as shown.
Use a safety pin or anything with a small point to poke small holes in the plastic towards the top where you'll hang the letters from the necklace. Keep in mind that the top of the V will really be the side since it will be acting as a < in this case. Insert the jewelry hoops the use a small paintbrush to mod podge around the letter just to make it a little sturdier. Make sure to get the sides where the sticker part would normally peel off. Let it dry.
Attach the hoops to the necklace chain just a few pieces apart and voila! You have a fun new necklace that's pretty festive this time of year!
