the Handy-Man Necklace

 I actually do enjoy going to Lowe's and Home Depot. However, it is usually to purchase flowers, outdoor cushions or to drool over the appliances.  I now have a new found love of being my husband's companion at these stores and it's not to help with home improvement projects! All you have to do is venture down the "Hardware" aisle to find fun ideas for jewelry making!

If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, leave your email  in a comment below or shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite. I will warn you that it can be addicting, but it has an infinite number of crafting ideas among other things.

Cue Tiny Sparkly Things. I found her necklace on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make.  I will spare you with the tutorial because she does an amazing job explaining how to create this piece with impressive hand drawn instructions.  Just click on the link above.

 Here is how mine turned out:
Thanks to Paper Wings  for joining me on this project. I'm sure she'll post her creation soon enough. She has a slight variation using fabric.  Stay tuned for more quick jewelry tutorials and a guest posting!


  1. yes! Posting mine soon. Just took my pics. I think I like yours better with one complete ribbon. Thanks for coming over to craft!!
