I've been working on some projects. It's kinda hard, considering my mom doesn't want me to do crafts or anything until holidays. But I can't wait that long... So I have to ask permission first. Kind of sad.
So here's a finished project: washer necklace! With wrapped wire and beads.
I saw these on craftster first, and then found a ton of other tutorials. I mixed a bunch together. One thing I don't have, unfortunately, is glaze. To make it all nice and... shiny. So I had to use mod podge instead.
All you have to do is get a washed, trace around it on some newspaper (wrapping paper, etc. At first the newspaper piece I cut out said nice words like chocolate, vanilla, caramel... but then they got cut out when I cut out the middle circle. so the only word visible was the word 'nuts,' and for some reason that just didn't appeal to me as much 'gelato' and 'caramel') and then cut the hole out from the middle. Now glue it on your washer with mod podge. When it's dry, put on several coats of mod podge. When dry, get some wire, wrap it around your washer, and string on 2-5 beads. Done! Add ribbon, yarn, hemp, etc. (I got suede cord from my sister, who got it on a package from Lucky.)
Have fun! :)
