DIY: Crochet Lace Necklace
After experimenting with three different types of natural glue for stiffening fabric I wanted to make something I’ve been meaning to try for some time.
A Crochet Lace Necklace.
I’m sure you’ve seen these chic vintage-y crochet necklaces everywhere. It is the vintage-come-modern look and it goes with everything. You can dress it up or down. All you need to make this dainty necklace are a little bit of jewelry making skill, (using pliers with jump rings,) an old lace scrap, and a necklace chain, preferably from a thrifted necklace.
Let’s get glammed!
- Natural Glue/Stiffening Method of your choice – corn starch is translucent so it’s good for colored lace like this one.
- Necklace Chain
- Plastic Tray or a plate for drying
Cut out an ornate pattern from your lace pile with a pair of small scissors with sharp points. You’ll need the sharp points for cutting around the intricate corners and curves.
You can use any pattern but I chose the floral bouquet for my necklace because there are holes on either side that I can use to hook the jump rings for the chain.
