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.

Lace

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.

    1. Sorry, the title is a little confusing. The necklace works with any type of lace but sinceΒ  crochet lace is a little heavier, it works best for this necklace. But you can use any type of lace. Hope that helps.

    When I read this, I had two thoughts: my wedding gown is all lace. Even though I’m divorced, I love the lace and just can’t throw it out: Now I can do lots of things…head-band, enhance the lace with tiny pearls, crystals, sequins (but not too much). Maybe a brooch( add a fabric back and stuffing and/or stiff facing fabric), I can think of at least 10 other things to make! My second thought/memory: in my first year of Nursing School, we wore “Probie Caps”–we were given a rectangular piece of linen with a “probie” blue band on it. We’d soak it in starch and water and paste it to the mirror in our room. When dry, peel it off glass and fold and straight-pin it into the assigned shape! After our first year, we traded it in for the official cap of the school of nursing I attended and graduted from!
