You cannot have a bad day once you are making (or wearing) one of these! Look what Anne whipped up recently with our Encouraging Words charms from eCrafty.com!
DIY Easy Holiday Cheer Charms Necklace Supplies from eCrafty.com Design by Anne Strasser
How to make it:
Anne varied the height of our message charms by changing the size of the jump rings she used to attach each charm to the chain.
She made a simple beaded dangle with a bicone – you could also use any clear translucent glass bead for a dangle. – our rondelle bead mix below is great for making a whole bunch of beaded dangles.
- To make a beaded dangle, thread the bead onto the ball-end headpin.
- Loop top/open end around round nose pliers (or a chopstick).
- Complete the loop, open a jump ring, attach to your chain or cord.
- Add charms with additional jump rings to get your desired height/hanging/display.
Our word and message charms are sold individually or in a variety pack of 15 – only $1 each!
This is an easy craft to do with groups, classrooms, troops or meetings as there are just a few steps (choose your charms, attach to chain with jump rings) and make a beaded dangle. Easy to change the message by changing the charms!
