Pine cone Necklace


This was a super fun little project! If you have ever made any kind of jewelry before then this will be super easy for you. If not... it'll still be easy and maybe more fun!

What you need:
1 metal chain [make sure it has character!]
lobster claws or clasp set
1 small pine cone
1 eye pin
3 metal loops
wood spray
pliers


[ I went to Michael's jewelry section and found everything I needed for a low cost.]



What to do:

1. Spray your pine cone with a wood spray fixative. Coat 3 times. 



2. While your cone is drying, prepare your chain by adding on the clasps at each end with a silver loop.


3. With your pliers, take your eye pin and wrap it around the little stub at the top of your pine cone. 


4. It's tricky, but it should look something like this. 


5. Attach the last metal loop on to the eye hook. 


6. Chain it on your necklace!
Wear, prance, enjoy!

  4. No! Small pine cones don't really have spikes :)
