Make Funky Neck Piece with Seeds: Do It Yourself

Hi Beauties,

Make Funky Neck Piece with Seeds Do It Yourself

I have been missing on IMBB since the last few days due to my exams and believe me, I never hated exams more! Grrr! I totally missed you people and from today a series of pending articles will come your way :D Christmas is round the corner and we all know it is a season of gifts. I love making handmade jewellery and today I am going to teach you how to make a cool neck piece out of chikoo seeds! You can make one for yourself and gift some to your friends too.  So, let’s get on with it quickly. The things you will need are:

Things Needed

1. Washed seeds from chikoo fruits.
2. Any small piece of hard paper (I used the tags we get in the airports for attaching to our bags :P).
3. A small piece of wire.
4. Fevi quick or any other strong glue.
5. Colorful beads. I have used wooden beads mainly
6. Threads of four colors (you can use as many colors as you wish to).
7. Scissors and tweezers.
8. Black nail paint.

Procedure:

Step 1:  Draw a circle on the hard paper and cut it out.

Step 2:

4

5

Apply fevi quick on the paper circle and place the seeds on it in the shape of a flower. Be very careful in this step as the strong glue can stick your fingers to the paper.

Step 3:

6

Now, hold a flat wooden bead with a tweezer and apply glue on one of its side. I will suggest you definitely use a tweezer for this step as the glue can spill from the sides of the tiny bead to your fingers. Place this bead on top of the seed flower.

Step 4:

7

8

Take a small piece of wire and make a loop with it.  Now, attach the loop at the back of the paper circle with fevi quick and paste some duct tape over it to further secure it.

Step 5:

9

10

Now, take the colored threads in the length you want your neck piece to be and pass them through the loop. Do take a longer length than your desired one as braiding tends to shorten the length considerably.

Step 6:

11

12

Take a big circular bead and pass all the threads through it. This will give some weight to your otherwise light pendant.

Step 7:

15

Now, divide the threads in equal halves and put the other beads through the strands. I have used this particular design. You may use any colored beads or any design which catches your fancy.

Step 8:

16

Once you have finished putting through all the beads, tie a tight knot and start braiding the threads.

Step 9:

After finishing braiding on both sides, tie a knot to secure it.

Step 10:

Finally, take black nail paint and paint all the portions of hard paper peeping out through the pendant.

Ta-daa! We are done! :D

Wear it yourself or gift them to your friends, nieces or anyone close and spread smiles!  See you with the next article soon!

Hey girl, that’s a cool neck piece, thanx for sharing, doncha think it’s better to paint that paper circle first before you stickon those beeds?

Reply

aparajita December 9, 2012 at 8:53 pm

ya priya, its definitely a better idea to paint the disc before sticking on those beads :) but i had initially thought that the colorful paper would look nice, so didn’t bother to color :(

Reply

priya December 10, 2012 at 10:03 am

oh ok, no worries it’s a lovely neck piece, also a pretty one to gift friends :)
