D.I.Y Collar Bling

February 1, 2013

So when I was out shopping at Harbour Town, I found this necklace in Diva for $4. I was instantly drawn to it because of the little lions on it, but I didn't like it as a necklace. For $4 I couldn't leave it behind, so I bought it in the hopes of finding a better way to wear it. I decided to turn it into collar bling and a bracelet/cuff. 

Cut the necklace so it's an approapriate length for your shirts. Also make sure it's as symmetrical as possible so you don't look lopsided! 

Find some pins to glue onto the back so you can attach the collar bling to your shirts. I used these little pins from charity badges and pulled the charity branding off the front.

Glue the pins symmetrically to the back of the piece of the necklace that you cut. I suggest using Araldite superglue or something similar so it wont break. 

Wear it! 
I also turned the remaining piece of necklace into a bracelet/cuff which also looks awesome. So there you have it, a quick and easy way to turn a rather unflattering necklace into tots fashion accessories. Also don't think you need this exact necklace to make something like this. There are heaps of cheap accessories in the sale sections that can be easily turned into something you'd actually wear. Just be creative!
