Convertible Necklace Headband
With the assistance of a stretchy flexible hair connection, your favourite locket can quickly change into a brand-new hair device. I tried this technique on a handful of old necklaces and also a few items of a gold chain as well as like the way they transformed out.
You’ll need: Necklace or chain (about 18 inches long), Elastic hair connection and Needle nose pliers
The Method: Using needle nose pliers, bend open among the jump rings/links at the end of your pendant or chain. (Tip: If your necklace does not have web links that can quickly open, add your own dive ring at the end) Insert the elastic hair tie right into the ring and also close it back with pliers. If the ring does not close firmly, attempt overlapping the edges so that the flexible tie does not move out. On the other end of the locket, open the lobster clasp and also put the flexible connection inside. If it fits comfortably on your head, after that, you’re all set; otherwise, attempt utilizing a different size elastic tie to adjust. Now you’re all set to enjoy your days out with your own DIY personal necklace headband!
