DIY Tortoiseshell Necklace
This is one of the fastest Do-It-Yourself projects I have ever done.
What you need: Glue gun, 1m nude ribbon, 40cm of tortoiseshell chain, normal fabric scissors, zig zag fabric scissors.
1. Take your nude ribbon and cut it in half. Cut the ends wit the zig zag scissors to stop the ribbon fraying.
2. Take the non-zigzaged edge of one half of ribbon and tie it in a knot at one end of the chain. Take the other 50cm of ribbon repeat this on the other end of the chain.
3. Take the glue gun and put some glue under the knot to stop it from sliding along the chain loop. Tuck in any loose ends.
4. Your necklace is finished, just tie in a knot around your neck.
