It’s lace week here at Brit HQ, and we’re all about figuring out cool and creative new ways to use lace. Today’s hack? Lace necklaces! Using a mix of doilies, trim, and lace fabric, read on to find out how to make 3 chic accessories using nothing but lace and chain.
– lace trim
– small lace doilies
– small and medium cord ends
– chain and jump rings
– fabric scissors
– hot glue
– needle nose pliers
1. Lace Feather Pendant: This pendant was inspired by one of our favorite natural shapes, feathers!
Place a bit of glue in a cord end and wedge a piece of trim into the cord end. Cut the bottom so that it turns into a feather shape. Use needle nose pliers to attach a few lengths of chain across the front of the feather. Then add a chain to the top and wear.
We love how the chain falls perfectly across the front of the feather.
And it looks extra awesome paired with a lace top!
2. Red Doily Statement Necklace: For a more colorful look, turn to brightly colored doilies! We picked these up at Michael’s.
Use jump rings to attach doilies to each other in a shape you like. Then use jump rings to attach chain. That’s it!
See how each doily is slightly different? Kind of like a snowflake ;)
3. Neutral Dangly Earrings: For a more natural look, combine white and beige lace trim to create these gorgeous earrings.
Use hot glue to attach lace pieces to each other in a pattern you like. We went with white, then beige, then another piece of white. Lay chain across and use a cord end to secure. Add an earring hook and you’re done!
Hanging on a wall just doesn’t do these darlings justice.
Such a pretty look – almost like a linear chandelier earring.
