Interchangeable Statement Necklace

Try for this project now!

Materials:
– cardboard
– mod podge
– metallic spray paint
– eyelets
chain + jump rings
– fabric, paper, etc (for the interchangeable panels)
– Tools: glue gun, hole punch, sewing machine


Trace it onto your various pieces of fabric or paper.

Now it’s time to turn that cardboard into a more substantial piece of accessorizing armor. Spray paint it gold. Let dry. Cover with Mod Podge. And then spray paint gold again! Let dry.

To attach the chain, punch holes in the cardboard and attach eyelets. Use jump rings to attach the chain.

Trace your template onto the “sharp” VELCRO® fastener side. Cut out and glue onto the cardboard.

Back to the fabric! For these panels, you’ll want to trace your template onto the “soft” VELCRO® tape side three times (for three necklaces).

Once you’ve done that, head to your sewing machine and attach each to a fabric panel. And that’s it! If you’re using patterned paper, skip the sewing machine and simply use hot glue.

The possibilities with this one are pretty endless so have fun with it!

And there it is! Easy to change and irresistible to wear.
