Lately, I've been a bit bored with my selection of accessories...but new jewelry just isn't in the budget. So, I decided to get creative and make some fun necklaces on my own, for super cheap. Each of these necklaces probably cost me under $2 each to make! When I went into the hardware store the other day, I was really surprised by how much I was inspired by everything they have in there - there are lots of bits and bobs that could easily be made into jewelry with just a few small changes. Since finishing these necklaces I've brainstormed a few more fun accessory DIYs using hardware, so look out for those on here in the future!
While I was at it, I decided to try out this DIY from Yesterday's Sweetheart, using a piece of copper pipe. I think I might try and find a thicker chain for it eventually since this chain is a little too dainty, but I love this idea!
Well, that's it for now! Who woulda thought I'd be going to the hardware store instead of the craft store? - you can find inspiration in so many unexpected places. I'm excited to try more projects like this!
PS If anyone tries this DIY (or has done something similar), post a picture or link! I wanna see!
