6 DIY Chain Necklace

>> Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Don’t be fooled by the exceptionally pale skin people, I must be Native American deep down. You know, from one of the tribes that uses every part of the buffalo? Let no bone go to waste…Once again, it’s time for an explanation of my off-the-wall thought process.

 



After tweaking the light fixture in my kitchen with a much improved lamp shade…

…a few bits and pieces remained behind, with the chain that originally hid the wiring being one of the neglected leftovers.

Oh, no. I couldn’t let this handsome fella go to waste. Time to get crafty!

Using a bit of the skinny chain remaining from our DIY bib necklace project and a pair of needle nose pliers, my new necklace was knocked out in no time!

It’s kind of wonderful, right? I thought so and am pretty sure my resourcefulness bumped my status in the tribe up a few notches.

You're so smart!! I wish that i had an old chandelier in my house that I could take apart to make one. Have any more hanging around your house?

Thanks, CB & Lisa! Glad to make you smile!

Donna, fortunately I've knocked out the two worst light fixtures in my house so I have none to spare BUT I am positive there are many more lurking around homes in America...or you could just go to a hardware store and pick up a brand spankin new chain. :)

I love the light fixture. I'm getting ready to switch out one of my own light fixtures...
