I wanted to create this post since the time I wore my handmade necklace to the Lakme Fashion Week and compliments didn't seem to stop! Whenever I want to make a statement I believe in noone else but myself and without a doubt only you can make something for yourself that is unique and individual. I attempted this DIY Pom Pom necklace a night before day 2 of the fashion week as I was seriously bored of gold metal and baubles. Also this one is a reflection of my inner boho diva that refuses to stop experimenting every time I dress.
So here's all you need to make this one...
- Wool (single or many colours)
- A thread to tie the pom poms
- A pair of scissors
- Link chains
- Lots of creativity and patience
Cut a thread out of a wool spun in long length.
After cutting make the ends meet.
Keep making the ends meet till it becomes the size and length you want. It usually takes 6-7 rounds to get the desired length.
After all the ends are met, cut one side of the ends loose for a pom pom.
Cut a thread in small length to tie the pom pom.
Tie it until you think it won't break loose.
Create as many you want in varied colours in the same way as explained above.
Insert the closed ends in link chains and you are done. You can choose as many link chains depending on how you want to wear it.
Style tip: Wear it with plain tops and tees for the neckalce to get all the attention. If you want to mix and match with prints or colours keep the colours in your top contrast to that of the necklace for it to get the deserved attention.
