Yarn Necklace Tutorial...

I first discovered these necklaces in March when I went to my girlfriend Staci's baby shower, but never blogged about them. It is definitely a fall/winter accessory because it is made of yarn, so I wanted to wait until it was cooler to post them. These would be the perfect gift for someone that likes chunky jewelry. I wear mine a lot and always get comments on it. So simple, easy and quick.

Here is what you'll need:

Yarn, of various textures and colors. A disc pendant with a large hole in it, and scissors. Yep that's it.
I made mynecklace 72 inches long. I know that seems REALLY long, but you are going to tie a couple knots in it and wear it doubled around like a scarf. You may want yours shorter, so this step is totally according to your preference.

Cut lots of strands of yarn to the desired length. Fold it in half and pull it through the whole in your disc. Loop the two sides back through the center and pull it tight.


I tied a couple of knots in my necklace on the sides to keep it from turning into a tangled mess.


And in case you missed the first picture of my chest, here it is again. Sorry!

That's it. A fun, easy, inexpensive and unique gift. I hope you make some of these and get rave reviews!
