I used some of the supplies I got from my favorite Portland, OR craft thrift store, Knittn’ Kitten. You have to visit it if you are in Portland! I got some ribbon, wooden beads, and assorted other stuff.
Craft a Day in September, Day 8: The first draft of the “peapod” necklace. Inspired by Jessica at Happy Together’s ribbon-pearl necklace. I didn’t love the spacing of the beads, so I redid it to look like this:
The second draft of the “peapod” necklace. I thought it was cuter with the beads right next to each other — looks like a peapod, right? Sorry for the photos – it’s hard to take pics of a necklace on yourself.
Here’s a slightly better view of the necklace.
Here’s another version. This one’s a bit more preppy with navy grosgrain ribbon & kelly green beads.
The supplies: A beaded applique and some organza ribbon.
My 3 year-old son was in on the crafting with me too, so we made him this little toothpaste necklace with a kitschy charm and some baker’s twine.
