Chain Necklace Makeover


I've had this chunky chain necklace for a while now and didn't wear it because it was a bit too short for my taste. The material of the chain is actually plastic instead of metal, which makes it a lot lighter, but still it ended up hanging around in my room without any use, so it was makeover time for the necklace.


This is so simple that you are only going to need jersey yarn, pliers and chain or an old necklace.
 

1. Remove the clasp from the necklace.


2. Cut about 1.50 m or 2 m ( if you want to make a big bow in the back) of jersey yarn. Leave more or less 30 cm of yarn in one end (to tie the necklace later) and weave the rest around the chain links.


3. Tie the necklace around your neck to measure and cut the excess yarn. That's it your necklace is ready to wear.





Also, the pictures of me wearing the necklace were taken by my sister Mariana, she says she wants to be a photographer and she really has an eye for it. I would ask her if the picture was okay,  if the necklace was crooked or the hair in the way, and she would come over, put everything in place, go back a take a really nice picture.
I have to teach her camera settings one of these days :D


I hope you liked this little diy.
Talk to you soon,
