DIY Idea: Necklace Headband

by - 12:34:00 PM

This DIY idea is probably my favorite so far. I know it's been out there for some time, but I tried it just a few days ago and I absolutely loved it. Turning a necklace into a headband is super easy and a very fashionable way to create new accessories. This is specially practical if you own necklaces that are really beautiful but don't work as well around your neck. I know I do. So, instead of leaving them at the bottom of your jewelry collection, you can try turning them into a headband and see if it looks better at the top of your head. It would still work as a necklace, so there's nothing to lose really. So, without further ado, here's a simple step-by-step on how to turn a necklace into a headband...

What you'll need:
- A necklace
- Elastic band (preferably matching your hair color)
- Thread and needle
- Scissors

How to:
1. Cut a 6-7" piece of elastic. This will be the back of the headband, so measure it with the necklace to make sure it fits your head properly.
2. With a matching thread, sew the elastic into the metallic loops of the necklace on both sides. 
3. In case you want to use it as a necklace again, just cut the threads.

Told you it was easy!
