Anyone else lovin' charm necklaces right now? I've got several that I've been wearing a lot of lately. Know what else I have a lot of?? FABRIC! Guess what?! I've found a way to combine my favorite fabrics with my current favorite accessory. And, I'm sharing the tutorial today!
Fabric Charm Necklaces
Frame charm (found in the jewelry department of your local craft store)
Mod Podge "Dimensional Magic"
Chain necklace (also from the craft store jewelry department)
Jump Ring (ahem, jewelry department)
1) Gather your supplies
2) Pick your favorite fabric, using the enclosed sticker as a template
(PS. I wasn't sure if the adhesive-backed stickers that came with my charm frames were sturdy enough to hold the fabric. SO...I ditched them for the reliable Mod Podge. If you use the stickers, let me know how it works!)
3) Trace around the sticker and cut your fabric to size
4) Use a glue dot to secure the fabric circle in place. Grab your Dimensional Magic.
5) Fill in the frame with the Dimensional Magic. Use a very gentle hand to avoid overflow!
Let your charm dry!
Before adding your charm to your necklace chain, you'll need to add a jump ring! Amy did a great tutorial on this several months ago when she shared her DIY Charm Necklace Tutorial. Go check it out, if you need a refresher on jump rings :).
These charms are so pretty all alone on a necklace. OR...you can add other fun charms. The jewelry aisle at your local craft store is FULL of fun charms!
I like to mix and match my charms, personally. Sometimes I wear the fabric charm with an "e" charm from Anthropologie. Sometimes I pair it with my favorite Texas-shaped charm (representing!) and sometimes I add a silver heart. I love options! :)
Happy Friday, friends! Have a great Mother's Day weekend!
