How-to: Make a Washer Necklace Out of Leftover Furniture Parts

Finished washer necklaces
Each time I buy furniture that requires assembly, I always have some left over hardware. I take this hardware and put it in a jar thinking that one day I will need that extra nut or bolt. Well today is that day! Here is a tutorial on how-to take those extra washers and make them into a cute necklace.

You will need:

  • Scissors
  • X-acto knife or hole punch
  • Pencil
  • Small piece of scrapbooking paper (you can use the left over scraps for this project)
  • Modge Podge (or something similar)
  • Washer
  • Aleene’s Paper Glaze
  • 36” of ribbon or cord

I’m a lifelong crafter with many different interests. My latest obsession is making accessories for women's hair and making flowers from a variety of recycled and repurposed materials. If it is shiny, feathery or sparkly I love it! I also carry around a pocket camera to take pictures of items, scenery, signs, or anything else that I find inspiring.

I enjoy creating new things and sharing how to make my creations with others on my blog (
