Some inspiration from Honestly WTF
I made these tribal necklaces ages ago, but forgot to post them. I got the tutorial from I Spy DIY . First you will need rope, chain, lobster clips, colourful thread, beads and other decorative hardware & nuts. Oh and masking tape. And a hot glue gun.
First, cut the rope into your desired necklace length. Tape the ends of the rope with the masking tape to stop them fraying. Then tie the first colour of thread around the rope and continue to wrap for as long as you want.
To change colours simply tie the next colour onto the previous ones and continue wrapping, creating whatever pattern you like.
When you’ve covered the entire length of the rope, secure the thread with a knot. Then cut the ends off (leaving a little tape), and glue gun a nut to either end. Glue a section of chain into the nuts and attach a lobster clip to one of the chains.
And you’re done!
My apologies for the surly photo. It was the best I could do given my level of sleep deprivation over the weekend!
