DIY: Crochet Lace Necklace

Lay the ironed lace flat and adjust the shape a little more. Then, cut the edges off with the sharp pointed scissors around the perimeter of the pattern you want. If there are thin threaded lines, like the one above, you can decide to leave which ones intact without compromising the sturdiness.

Add the chains on both sides and then, ta dah!

I used whatever chain I had in my drawer for this tutorial so it’s a clumsier than I’d like, but you can imagine all kinds of beads you can add to embellish your necklace. What’s great is that the lace this came from has more patterns to make matching earrings and bracelets.

Oh, the possibilities.

    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!
