Hello Readers. Do you save little mementos as you travel through life? I do. I try not to be a hoarder but some things are hard to throw away. I try to find a way to use them instead of hiding them away in a drawer. My project today came about as I tried to find a way to save/use a little memento I got from a recent wedding.
I love weddings, doesn't everybody? There's love, joy, music, dancing, cake,.... what more could you want?
Cords of many colors.
When I got to this fabulous wedding (Seriously, it was fabulous, and they put it all together in 3 weeks. Amazing!) there were little place cards that had a cute little brass key attached. Super cute. The cards told me where to sit and what I was having for dinner.
My whole family went to this wedding, so I had several keys. They were a few different designs and I kept them for a couple weeks as I decided what to do with them. I thought I could make a little pendant necklace with some or all of these keys. I ordered some leather cords pre-cut to a necklace length. It was $6.99 for approximately 2 dozen cords of various colors on Amazon.
I chose this neutral taupe sort of color and put it through the top of each key. I tied a knot so the keys would stay at the center front of the necklace. I adjusted the over all length so the necklace was a nice length for me and tied a simple knot at the end. I cut off the excess and that was it.
The leather cords were soft and easy to work with. I like long necklaces like this, they are easy to wear. I saved a few cords to make a few more necklaces in the future and my daughter took the rest of the cords. She said they would make great friendship bracelets.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
And congratulations to the Mulders!
