DIY: Velvet Necklace

DIY Velvet Ring Necklace

I know, I know… it’s been a while since my last DIY over here.  That’s going to change (most likely in the New Year) but with the holidays and work craziness + general wackiness in my personal life, my creativity has been a bit sapped.  That said, I still managed to get my act together for a series of DIY projects with my pals at iVillage.  And today’s is this lovely little necklace (modeled after this project, but updated for holiday.)

Just go here for the full tutorial!

    Gorrrrrgeous! It looks like the full tutorial link you posted no longer works, and I couldn’t find it by searching their site. Any chance you could post the tutorial here, as well? Also, sources for those beautiful rings would be much appreciated, if you have them 🙂

      I know, it’s such a bummer because iVillage took the link down! Unfortunately the tutorial is so old that I don’t have the photos anymore. :-/ And the wooden rings came from a craft supply shop in New York (NY Beads.) I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful; I really should delete this post! x
