FHF x The Zoe Report: Dior Inspired DIY Necklace


 If you didn't catch The Zoe Report yesterday, I was so excited to partner up with them for this fun Dior inspired DIY! I have been drooling over it ever since I saw it in the Fall 2012 RTW collection but it has a serious price tag of $2,700! Do you know how many pairs of shoes you can buy with that kind of coin?! So naturally I opted to spend $45 on supplies and got my DIY on! 

What you'll need:  
2ft. Velvet Cord, 2 ft. Cotton Spiral Cord (both cords were purchased at Joann Fabrics!), E6000 GlueSuper Glue Gel, Needle & Thread, 3 Teardrop Stones, 2  Metal Barrel's, 1 Magnetic Clasp, 1 Sheet of Felt

Begin by measuring both cords around each stone using the needle to hold them in place. Next, measure a square around the stone making sure to leave enough room on all sides. Cut out your square and apply the E6000 glue to your stone and adhere it to the felt. Repeat 3 times.

 Measure velvet cord around the stone and cut. Apply E6000 glue directly on felt and adhere velvet cord. Repeat with spiral cord leaving end on the outside of stone (see bottom right). You will repeat this process on one other square, reversing the spiral cord end to the opposite side. Leave to dry.

For the middle stone, adhere velvet cord to felt and criss cross cord at the point. Repeat with Spiral cord. Leave to dry. 

Once they have dried, cut felt around each stone. Place all 3 stones together leaving the middle stone hanging lower. Adhere them together using super glue and leave to dry. Next using E6000 glue, adhere each cord together and press firmly. Leave to dry.  

 Using needle and thread, make a few stitches along each side to ensure cord is secured tightly together.  Measure cord to desired length and stitch end of cord tightly together. Slide metal barrel on each side. Next, apply super glue in each side of clasp. 

After glue is applied, set cord in. You can use tool to push loose strings in. Repeat on other side. Allow necklace to dry overnight.

Annnnnnd scene!
