Washer Necklace

Are you bored in your house? Are you looking for a quick and easy project? Do you like jewelry?


If you answered yes to any of those questions (or if you didn't), I've got a great project for you to do! With only a few items that are easily accessible, you can make a fantastic necklace from metal washers!


You'll need...

  • Washers

  • Nail Polish

  • Washi Tape

  • String or Chain

  • Beads or Charms

Let's get started!

  • Decorate your washers! You can use either nail polish or washi tape on this step. You can also seal your design and tape using clear nail polish.

  • Attach your string or chain to the washer. For the string, fold a length in half, push the folded end through the middle of the washer, then pull the two loose ends through the loop and tug tightly.

  • Slide a bead or charm onto the string. You can tie a knot above the bead to keep it in place too!

  • Secure the ends of your string or chain together, making sure you have an opening that's large enough to fit your head through.

You've finished your washer necklace! Is there a way you can use nail polish to make a cool design on the front of the washer? Could you use a toothpick to draw in the nail polish? What other materials could you use for decorating the metal? I'd love to see your projects!
