Cute and Easy Marshmallow Necklace
This necklace hack is one of my personal favourite and it is really adorable.
White and pink clay
Chains and jump rings and eye pins
Cutter and paint brush and black and pink paints
Varnish or triple thick gloss
Take some white clay and make a thick snake from it and repeat the same with pink clay. So you will need two snakes of pink clay and one snake of white clay, you can also use one pink portion and two white.
Now place them in a row and cut equal piece from it.
Now attach all the three clays with eye pins and secure it on both ends
Take small balls of black clay and make eyes, you can also use black paint to make eyes and moustache.
Allow them to bake in the oven for a while and then make a pink heart with paint over the white clay and add details with black paint over the pink clay as shown in the video
Add some triple thick gloss to secure the paint from spreading. You can also use varnish to add some shine to the clay.
Now add jump rings and add the chains and your marshmallow necklace is ready.
DIY Minimal Pearl Bead Choker
We have always heard the saying “Less is more”. So here is the minimalistic pearl choker that will look really elegant with almost every outfit.
String or elastic
Chains with clasps
Pliers, ruler and glue gun and scissors
Cut the clear thread or string of about 34-35 cms long whichever fits the best and keep in mind that an extended chain will be added to it so cut accordingly
Stick the string to the table such that the beads don’t fall out and start passing the beads through the string and once the bead reaches its position add a drop of glue and ensure the bead gets stuck to it so that it remains in place.
Repeat the process till you are done with all the beads.
Cut of the excess string and attach the clasps at the end of it with the help of glue gun as shown in the video.
