wood disk necklace tutorial | the twinery

Baker's twine and wood disk charms go together like me and him! It's time to make some necklaces for stocking stuffers, classroom gifts for the young ladies or teachers and teacher's aids, craft fairs...you get the idea.

  1. Choose your three favorite colors of The Twinery baker's twine. I used Caribbean, Marschino and Honeydew.
  2. Visit your local craft supply store {with 40% off coupon in hand} and purchase jump rings, necklace clasps, necklace bails and those small silver items that I don't recall the name of pictured under the jump rings below.
  3. Gather some flat nose and round pliers.
  4. After adhering your necklace image to your wood disk, adhere the bail to the back of the disk. I used E6000 because of its awesomeness.
  5. While that dries, determine the length of your necklace and cut your baker's twine. Add a dab of E6000 to the inner shank of that silver piece that I don't know the name of making sure each strand has a touch of glue and then close up both sides with your flat nose pliers.
  6. Open your jump ring by twisting as seen below, not by pulling apart. Insert one end of the necklace strand piece through the jump ring and end of your necklace clasp and close. Repeat for the other end of the twine necklace.

Now you're the #1 Mom because you've found a cute, fun, new activity to do with your older girls for bible school, Girl Scouts or even a rainy day activity now that Fall is here.

The hardest part will be deciding what your word art will be. You can find epoxy bubbles and wood disks on Etsy, like I did.
