DIY: Hot Pink Statement Necklace

First of all, isn’t my sister so cute? She agreed to model my hot pink, chunky creation and she totally rocked it. This DIY necklace works perfectly under a shirt collar. The steps to creating your own statement necklace are crazy easy so let’s get started!

I originally wrote this tutorial for Crafts Unleashed, who provided the materials.

Step 1: Place a dab of hot glue on one end of the purse handle.
Step 2: Wrap the green paracord around the top of the handle a few times.
Step 3: Repeat Step 1 and 2 on the other side.
Step 4: Place a dab of hot glue just below the green paracord and begin wrapping your hot pink cord around the handle.

Step 5: Wrap the pink cord all the way around the handle until you reach the other green cord. To keep the wrapping tight, I periodically pushed the cord together to tighten it up. I also added a few dabs of hot glue here and there to provide more security.
Steps 6-7: If you want to add a little extra oomph, use the same method to wrap a little embroidery floss around the cord.
Step 8: Attach the necklace chain to the purse handle using jump rings or connectors (just use your fingers or a pair of pliers to open a connector and slide on the chain and purse handle). To determine the length the chain should be, I placed the purse handle on my chest to see where I wanted it to fall and then placed the chain around my neck and cut it where it met the handle.
