DIY & Design: nautical rope necklace

Apr 11, 2012

Moo's 1st birthday party is this weekend (crizazy!). 
I found this darling little nautical sailor dress at Target by Harajuku Mini and decided that it had to be her party theme.

It inspired me to create a piece of jewelry to wear for it.

the Nautical Rope Necklace tutorial: 

1. cut 4 pieces of rope or chord (make them long enough so that you will be able to get it on and off)
2. tie knots (as many as you want and wherever you would like- I did 2)
3. sew the two ends together
4. tie and wrap hemp/twine around the sewn ends (in order to hide the ends)


*I found the chord and hemp at Hobby Lobby*

Cost: $4


I cannot wait to share her birthday pictures with you!
I may be trying to do too much for her 1st bday.
I may just be a tad crazy.

I am.
