Neon Chain Necklace DIY



Ahhhh, rainy days. There is just something about them that makes me want to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee and watch The Office re-runs all day. Unfortunately I had been procrastinating all week and my 'to-do' list grew to be a mile long. I took a break from cleaning my house to make this neon chain necklace. I have been seeing them everywhere and thought that they couldn't be very hard to make! I had limited pink rope though so mine didn't turn out as 'neon' as I would have liked, but I thought I would show you how to make a simple one.. Or at least inspire you to come up with something similar!  I found this chain at my local fabric store and guess what.. it's actually plastic! Which is perfect for people with sensitive skin like me! The links actually clip together and come apart relatively easily too which eliminates the need for a clasp.

What You Need:
  • Chain (Metal or Plastic)  
  • Neon Rope or Shoelace

What To Do:

Step 1: Attach the end links of your chain to create a full circle. The best thing about using plastic chain is that you can easily attach and detach the links, eliminating the need for a clasp!
Step 2: Fold the chain in half.
                                

Step 3: Attach the two ends together either with a clasp, or just attach the chain links as I did!
Step 4: Feed the neon rope through one or both of the layers of chain.     

                               

Step 5: Be creative! Enjoy xx








The sun decided to shine long enough to go for a little walk. We found a trail and followed it all the way to the end. We discovered a beach that had the liveliest tide pools! They were filled with tiny fish, sea urchins and crabs.

Love,
C
