DIY Hair Necklace

January 22, 2013

I love hair necklaces, as featured in this post. I had wanted one for a while. They make a boring bun, top knot, or sock bun so special! But I figured, why buy what I can make?
I used this tutorial. And changed things up a bit. Here's what to do;

Supplies;

Chains of varying style, shape, and finish
Jump rings
Wire ( I did use this at first, but eventually decided it was unnecessary)
Hair Comb (I had so much trouble finding one. I finally found one at JoAnn Fabrics!)
Bobby Pin
Pliers
Wire Cutters

Step One-
Cut your chains at different lengths, a little over half an inch difference will give you the draped look. I bought some chains, but also used two from necklaces that I didn't want anymore.

OLD Step Two-
Use wire to attach the chains to the Hair Comb by wrapping it around. Since making this hair necklace, I have decided it would look nicer, and be easier to just use jump rings to attach the chains.

NEW Step Two:
If like me, you think jump rings would look better, use pliers to attach the jump rings to the hair comb

Step Three-
Use the pliers to attach a jump ring to the other end of the chains.

Step Four-
Put a bobby pin through the jump ring.

  27. Juliette! This is lovely.

    I've always thought head dresses were lovely, so to see one so elegant and modern is very refreshing.

    Well done, and thank you so much for sharing all your lovely ideas :) x
