I had to make another one!
It must have been the one on the front.
The one that held the heels hooked over its back.
One kicked by swinging legs.
The one knocked by the vacuum.
This one that was perfect….for me!
So when planning what to wear I usually start with pants or skirt. 98% of the time…pants win.
Usually, jewelry is the last thought.
Local DIY workshop
I’m hosting a “Find the DIY in You” event at our local Humane Society Resale Store.
If you find yourself smack dab in the middle of Arizona on March, 28 at 11 am. Stop by! I would love to meet you in person!
So, back to wardrobe planning. What to wear. Pants yes!
Wouldn’t a spindle necklace be cool to wear!?!?!
I made one a while back for a dear friend. She’s always on the lookout for spindles for me. 🙂
You can see her spindle necklace here and how I made it.
I made this one the same way. I did, however, pick out most beat up spindle in the pile. You know the one on the front of the chair, that heels hook over, and vacuums hit.
The spindle beads are painted with just black chalky paint and waxed. The first spindle bead necklace was painted with softer beachy colors.
I used small beads between the chunky spindle beads. This helps the beads lay well.
Now I have the pants picked out and the jewelry!
The spindle bead front right was even split…
but I always say, “broken pieces mend stronger.” 🙂
Now I have to find a top…
without paint on it. :/
I’ve updated this post to include another unique jewelry DIY. This truck bracelet is very simple to make.
The hard part, but still fun is finding a little metal truck or car. I found this one in Ark City in an antique mall for $5. It’s actually a tow truck.
One thing that makes this so easy is that the wheel axle snaps off. I snapped it off on one side. Slide a bracelet I bought at the Pioneer Woman. under the axles letting some bead lay under the truck. Then snap the wheels back on.
You can see the video on Pinterest.
