DIY: Crochet Lace Necklace

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!

Supplies:

  • Lace
  • Natural Glue/Stiffening Method of your choice – corn starch is translucent so it’s good for colored lace like this one.
  • Necklace Chain
  • Pliers
  • Plastic Tray or a plate for drying

Instruction:
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.
