It's no secret that statement necklaces are all the rage right now, but how much of a statement can such a necklace actually make if you spot someone else wearing the same exact one?
With that in mind, we asked Jenni Radosevich, the brain and blogger behind I Spy DIY, how she would create a truly original statement necklace. She came back with this easy five-step DIY that is as customizable as it gets: You can use any kind of gem, stone, ribbon, cut-out design -- you name it! -- for a one-of-a-kind piece that will most certainly have everyone asking, "Where can I get that?"
1. What You'll Need
Felt Gems or StonesNeedleThreadRibbonScissors Glue Marker
2. Step 1
Arrange your stones on the felt, and trace around each stone.
3. Step 2
Remove the stones from the felt, keeping them in the same order you traced them in. Layer two pieces of felt and cut out the design.
4. Step 3
Sew your stone on to the front piece. (You can find gems with holes at most craft stores, or you can simply glue the pieces to the felt.)
5. Step 4
Glue the ribbon on to the bottom piece of felt, then adhere to the top piece of felt with glue.
6. Step 5
Let dry, and then tie on!
