It's very nice to see you today.
My current project: I'm turning paper bags from blah to TADA!
Right now, let's focus on the handles. Yesterday, I made a bag charm out of one and today, what about a necklace?
I'm using a few beads. These ones, however, are looking a little blah.
A few coats of paint was all they needed. I chose the color pool blue...the name itself relaxes me already!
Let's make a loop at one end of the rope/bag handle. Secure in place with a few stitches. I used embroidery thread in yellow as an accent color.
With a needle and thread, attach the beads to the rope/bag handle in an alternating pattern.
Use as many beads as the rope/bag handle can accommodate. Doesn't this look like peas in a pod? Then finish with a few knots and a second loop on the open end.
Add a simple chain and...
...TADA! -- instant summery necklace.
For a little more detail:
...add some teardrop beads and tassels.
Sea and sunshine as an accessory...yes, please!
