Wood Chevron Necklace
I know I just did a post with wood skewers and leather rope, but I have so much of it, and it's so cheap! Anyway, I saw a really cute set of metal chevron necklaces on Project Runway. It's a very inspiring show! I don't have a way to cast metal, but I do have a lot of cheap wood skewers. So there you are!
SO take your skewers, and cut them into pieces. For every chevron section, you will need 6 even sized pieces. You may have to adjust size a bit later.
Then, use a hot glue gun to glue them together into a chevron shape like the one below. The easiest way to do this is by making two Vs, then connecting them.
I made two of these, but you can do any number. In the picture below I have an extra V shape just so you can see that as an option.
Then, just use hot glue to glue a little bit of leather cording to connect the pieces you have.
Just glue on some jump-rings at the top of the necklace. Add some chain.
And there you are! Super trendy chevron necklace, at your service!
