DIY Jewelery pendant from a branch (Mother's Day)
One more week and then we have to believe it. At least, our children. Mother's Day is just around the corner and so I'm sharing a nice DIY to give an original gift to mom or grandma. Last week you could read how I made wooden photo holders made. This time we made a jewelry pendant from a branch.
So play Bblogt.nl on to the men because this DIY is also very suitable for men and their offspring.
DIY jewelry pendant from a branch
I always like to make a little something for the grandmothers with the children. For their birthdays and therefore also for Mother's Day. Every year I try something new and sometimes it is difficult to stay original.
This time the little man and I made a cool jewelry pendant to hang bracelets or necklaces on. This way the jewelry will not get lost and the chains will not get tangled.
What do you need?
- a thick branch (at least 1.5 cm in diameter and at least 30 cm long)
- Cotton thread or wool
- Threaded hooks
- Possibly a saw
How do you proceed?
In the forest we found a thick branch of about 2 centimeters in diameter. It was quite long so we sawed off a piece first so that it was about 30 centimeters. We screwed in a hook every five centimeters.
You can just do this by hand.
Then take a nice color thread and tie it around the branch. I started at 4 inches from the end of the branch. Then wrap the wire around the branch and make sure that the wire always runs neatly past each other. This creates a beautifully colored box.
When you have wrapped about 4 to 5 centimeters with thread, tie a knot again and pick a different color.
I left a small space between the different colors so that the jewelry pendant gets a playful effect. You can of course fill this in as you wish and make it as crazy as you want. Small children need a little help with this, but let them choose the colors and help them wrap.
When you are at the end of the branch, tie a knot. I then tied a plain white thread on either side of the branch and hung it on a screw. Your jewelry pendant is ready.
Have fun with it!
