DIY Bird Nest Necklace
Need an idea for Mother’s Day? Here is a cute and super easy tutorial on how to make a bird nest necklace for under $8.50!!
I was watching a morning show on a local TV station, Studio5. The only clip I caught showed a cute bird nest necklace. The blogger (who I dint catch her name and I can’t find any info on the website about) showed a cute necklace she had made. Her’s was a little different and she glued the beads on, but didn’t show how to make it. I thought it was SO cute and would be easy to make.
I am not a jewelry maker and I was able to complete this cute nest without any instructions.You don’t need any fancy jewelry tools.. just simple things you can find around your house or at your local craft store.
First loop your three beads onto the end of the wire and move them into a triangle shape. Begin wrapping your wire around your beads. Repeat until you have the desired amount.
Once you had the nest to the size want, began threading the wire from the bottom of the nest up and around the side to secure the nest into a circle (I did this three times-on four spots of the nest.)
When you are on your last wrap, make a loop at the top of your nest. Thread your chain onto the wire and wrap a fourth time around the nest. Note: If you have a chain that you can use rather then buying a new chain, you could make the loop and then thread your chain though it like any other necklace. That way you could use one chain for multiple pendants.
Then, wrap wire between your loop and the nest
Make it thick so it is secure and looks good. finish by wrapping your wire around the nest one last time underneath all the loops. Cut and thats it! Don’t worry about it being perfect, every nest is unique!
