How to make a necklace in the form of a cheerful pea pod
Today's project will tell you how to make a necklace in the form of a pea pod from which cheerful peas look out. The project is simple in execution and will take quite a bit of time. By the way, such handmade necklace will be a wonderful gift to the future mother, since the pea pod symbolizes fertility.
You will need:
- wood beads;
- green acrylic paint;
- thin black permanent marker (or black acrylic paint);
- thick wire (preferably in the color of the chain or lace);
- chain (or string);
- a piece of green felt;
- round pliers;
- green thread + needle;
- Super glue.
Decide on the number of peas in the future necklace and color them in green. Allow the paint to dry, then add a few more layers (2-3 is enough).
When the paint on the wooden beads will dry, use a marker (or black acrylic paint) and draw funny faces. Allow the paint to dry.
Take a thick wire and cut a piece of the necessary length (diameter of a pea * amount + 2 see). With the help of round-nosed pliers, make a loop on one side. By the way, if you make a necklace on a chain, then before you fold the loop, put the chain link on it. Pay attention, the chain link should be in the loop.
Put the peas on the wire and tighten them to the loop.
Again, use the round pliers and make a fixing loop. If you make necklaces on a chain, do not forget to put the second end of the chain on the wire before you make the loop. Pay attention, the chain link should be in the loop. Cut off the extra wire. If you have a necklace with a pea pod on a string, then insert the ends of the lace into the eyelets and tie it with a beautiful knot.
Cut out of the felt two semicircles in size slightly larger than the wire with peas. Then sew them together along a circle to make a pocket.
At the bottom of the pouch, pour a little of the super glue. Then level the faces of the peas so that they look in one direction and glue their faces outward. Allow the glue to dry.
That's all! The original necklace in the form of a pea pod symbolizing fertility is ready. Present it to the future mother.
