CUTE EASTER DAY DIY NECKLACE

Today I’m going to share an easy way of making cute Easter day accessory, right for all ages, without breaking the bank, and having fun at the same time.

 

Materials List: Eraser Erasers – http://www.classroomsupply.com/VALENTINE-ERASERS-36-UNIT/productinfo/852762/

You can buy these erasers from dollar store also and that would be much cheaper.

Ribbon or lace: http://www.joann.com/crafts/ribbons/

Needle: http://www.joann.com/dritz-looped-needle-threader-6-pkg/prd17573/

Use the needed to make a hole in each eraser, preferably on the top-upper edge of the eraser.

 

3B

 

 

Run the string through the hole.

Now tie a knot to keep the lace from twisting, this will help to keep the eraser stay upright also.

You can make single pendant necklace or make multi-pendant necklace with the same thread  (see the picture below). You can use different erasers for different occasions also. The picture below is an example of a necklace made with multiple halloween themed erasers.

DIY Valentine’s Day Banner

Heart1

 

Valentine’s day is a celebration of hearts filled with love, longing for love, waiting for love, yet unknown to love, ready to share the love, swimming in the joy and passion of love, going nuts being in love, giving more love than before, expecting to receive love and… so on and so much more.

For me and in my craft world it is an appropriate time to create something that reflects love, passion and hearts. So I have made a DIY banner for Valentine’s day with fabric cut in the shape of hearts and it has super-cute print on it. To add a little more craft to this banner I have connected to each bunting a hand-knit flower. Hope you all like it.

So the first step as always is to make sure you have all the material you need for to create this banner. Prepare the material so that you don’t have to worry about anything when you are in the middle of doing things.

  1. Designer fabric print (of your choice)
  2. Pencil
  3. Pellon iron on backing
  4. Satin ribbon
  5. Rotary cutter or Scissors
  6. Fabric knife
  7. Heart shaped stencil (I couldn’t find one in the market so made my own. It is very easy to make it. If you are good at drawing, draw a heart shape on a white sheet of paper. The size should be approx 6 x 6 inches. You can also find a heart shape on internet and print it (if you use a shape from the internet make sure you have the permission to download that artwork).
  8. Needle and thread

Now we are ready to start with our DIY Valentine’s day banner project-

Heart4

 

Use a heart shaped stencil to trace the flower pattern on the fabric.

 

Heart5

 

You can trace as many designs as you want on the fabric, just remember to do so on the back of the fabric. I drew 7 buntings, you can draw more or less depending on the length of the banner you want to make.

 

Heart6

 

Now you need to add firmness  to each bunting. To add weight and stabilize the bunting you would need to add an “Iron On Backing”. You can get them at Jo-Ann (http://www.joann.com) or Hobby Lobby (http://www.hobbylobby.com/) or your local, favorite craft store. (http://www.joann.com/peltex-1-side-fusible-interfacing-20-w-x-10yds/prd49910/)

 

Heart7

 

Put your  heart shape on top of  Iron on Backing. Use hot iron until fabric is fused with Iron on Backing.

 

Heart8

 

See instructions below in this picture.

 

Iron on backing1

 

Lay a single pennant on a foam board. Cut two small slits on the fabric with fabric knife or scissors.

 

Heart9

 

Repeat the same for all pennants and then put a satin ribbon through the slits of each.

 

Heart2

 

The shape of the pennant doesn’t have to be heart-shaped, you can choose any shape you like.

 

Heart1

 

To decorate the bunting ever more I have used knitted flowers (http://www.thethinthread.com/2013/knitting-in-2013-new-beginnings/). You may add any type of decoration to the bunting. I have done something simple and used the knitted flowers which I created few days ago.

Tuck your decoration with needle thread .

Love is in the air and this is how my DIY Valentine’s day banner finally looks like. Feel free to use this DIY to create your own and share them here. I have also put this final banner on my Etsy shop.
