Copper & Thread Necklace | DIY

Last week, I hosted a Girl’s DIY Night for a bunch of my friends to come together and make something simple, fun and useful! It was a fun night of laughter, making and you can’t forget the delicious food! Check out this post for a recap of the night. I laid out bowls all down the table full of supplies for each person to make their necklace their own. I even picked up a few tricks and ideas from my friends along the way. This is a great craft for a group of people because every necklace will be different and reflect the maker!

There is no hard and fast rule to how to make these necklaces. They are so simple and versatile! One of my friends even made one to take home to her daughter so they could match! Isn’t that so sweet?! Here is how to make your own copper and thread necklace:

 Copper & Thread Necklace DIY

* This DIY was inspired by Style Bee

Materials: Copper Tube, Embroidery Thread, Leather Cord, Wooden Beads, Scissors

Process: Slide your embroidery thread through the copper tube. Pull a 2 inch piece of thread from the skein of thread and cut. Fold the embroidery thread in half over the tube and tie in place. Cut through the bottom loops and trim off excess thread to make it even. Thread the leather cord though the tube and add a wooden bead. Tie a knot right over the bead. At the end, tie a knot so the necklace can simply slip over your head!

I can’t wait until the next DIY night! Would you ever throw or attend a DIY night?!
