Easiest Gold Necklace Ever

Quickest DIY necklace everI figured out how to make the cheapest gold necklace ever.  Well, ok, it isn’t real gold but gold coated or something.  After my wardrobe consultation, I realized that a lot of the jewelry I own does not fit the look that I want to have.  So I have been slowly adding new pieces to my collection.  But I’m super cheap when it comes to accessories.  But I had this idea so I headed to the local craft store to see if it would work.

DIY gold knot necklace DIYI looked in the jewelry section for a gold chain that I like the look of.  I’m pretty sure that this one was $3.00.  And it might have even been cheaper because I think it was on sale.  Look for the longest chain that you can find.

    I’m also WAY cheap when it comes to accessories so am totally loving these jewelry posts—the yarn bracelets are on my list of projects in the coming weeks.

      I will keep them coming! :) The yarn bracelets are SO easy and you can make them look a bunch of different ways just by changing the color and material!

    Super cute. I love chains lately. I just bought a chain from a friend who sells premier designs jewelry and it has 6 really thin strands and can do all sorts of different styles. I never even thought of trying something other than wearing it plain. I’ll have to hit the local craft store to see what kinds of chains they have!

      There are tons of chains to choose from at the craft store! The one I used was from their higher end line and it was still only $3. Yeah!
