Thanks to all the time I spend on Instagram, I have discovered Free People’s Bolo necklace (essentially a lariat, or a necklace with 2 dangling chains that you cross over each other). It is super easy and super cheap to DIY yourself!

 

All you need:

  • a length of black cord (I used about 1m as I wanted to wrap it a couple of times)
  • some silver beads

THAT’S IT. No tools, no glue, na-dah! Oh, and did I mention the supplies cost me under £2?

Step 1
Divide the silver beads into 2 halves. Thread half the silver beads onto 1 end of the cord.

Step 2

Tie a knot close to the end of the cord.
Repeat for the other side.

And you’re down. All ready for the summer festivals now!
