How to Turn a Necklace into a Headband

This tutorial was submitted to us by our close (and super-awesome) friend Emily.  You can find her at her blog.

Maybe you have a necklace you're bored with or have outgrown, or maybe you just want a new headband.  This might be the fastest, easiest tutorial I've ever done, but it seemed worth the effort since you may not have thought of it.

How to Make a Necklace into a Headband

What You Will Need:

  • a necklace
  • skinny elastic of your choice, tied into a loop {the loop + the necklace need to span your head}
  • pliers

I'm not gonna even bother with steps.  It's this simple: use pliers to open the ring that you usually attach the clasp of the necklace to, then thread a piece of thin elastic through it.  {If it fits without opening the ring, even better!}  Then put the elastic in the clasp so that the necklace is attached on both ends with the elastic.
