I have a confession. I wasn’t sure whether or not this DIY was good enough to share, so I left it on the back burner for a couple of months. If you’re a blogger yourself, how often do you scrap projects? I think what a lot of people don’t realise is how much work is behind each post- I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do, so I’m definitely not complaining! But for every post I share, there are at least 3 that get deleted because things didn’t work out right. (Should I do a post on basic jewelry making mistakes to avoid? Tell me in the comments section 🙂 ) For example, maybe the beads in the earring won’t face the front, or the necklace won’t sit right.

Anyway, after thinking about it, I decided the best feedback about this necklace would be from you guys, so fingers crossed 😉


Materials required

All your bits of leftover yarn


Chain necklace with big links



Step 1

Trim all the yarns to the same length, then fold them all in two.


Step 2

Knot the yarn through the chain: pull both ends of the yarn through 1 link, then through the loop at the end of the yarn tightly.
Leave 1 link empty, then knot the next piece of yarn through the next link. Continue till the necklace looks full enough to you or you run out of yarn!


Why not layer it up with some other necklaces? Here is another fabric yarn DIY necklace or some colourful Erickson Beamon Rose Garden earrings to match it with
