Greetings! I’m Paige from Little Nostalgia, back with another easy tutorial.
To be honest, I’m not really one to follow trends. Neon pants? No thank you. Acid wash denim? Get away from me. But lace? Lace is different. Lace is classic and pretty, and it’s one trend I’m actually excited about. It’s impractical for most of us to shroud ourselves in it everyday (bummer), but we can definitely do a lace necklace.
This project only takes about 20 minutes, and even though I had to buy most of the materials, it was under $8.00.
–several lace doilies (mine are from JoAnn)
–needle and thread
–anti-fray adhesive (optional)
First, lay your doilies out in the shape you want your necklace to be. Then, using a color of thread that matches the yarn, sew the edges together. You’ll only need to do a few stitches in each spot.
After all of the pieces are connected, cut your ribbon. The length of the pieces depends on how long you want the “tails” to be when the bow is tied at the back. I like mine long and cut 22″ for each side. Once the ribbon is cut, thread the end through one of the doily holes.
Using two or three stitches, sew the pieces of ribbon together. Repeat the same thing on the other side of the necklace. Depending on the kind of ribbon you used, you may also want to dab a little anti-fray adhesive on the ends of the ribbon when you’re done.
And that’s it! Now you have a fun new project to try this weekend. Plus, it would make a great gift for Easter, Mother’s Day, graduation, or a little something for yourself just because.
Are you into the new lace trend? Have you ever made any other lace accessories? Or statement necklaces like this one?
