New Wives Club #20: turning scraps of old lace into a pretty DIY necklace


DIY lace necklace

As the weekend rolls on it’s time for a little Sunday ‘crafternoon’ reading with today’s New Wives Club post, and I wanted to share something a little different from the usual home and garden projects.  I came across this great idea for using up scraps of old lace by transforming it into a pretty necklace.

Whether you’ve got some lengths of lace left over from your wedding, a box of scraps that never seem big enough to do anything with, or if you spot some lace at an antique fair or carboot then here’s what to do with it.  With a few easily gathered extras you can make your pretty piece of lace into a rather lovely necklace.

Stitching DIY lace necklace

It’s been a long time since I tried making jewellery – probably the last time was when I made a beaded necklace at University for a ball I was going to – but as a lover of antique lace this idea appeals to me.  Have you ever tried your hand at making your own jewellery?  If you like this idea, I also found a similar one using crocheted doilies here.

Have a wonderful Sunday and if you’re looking for more ideas or inspiration like this for your home, garden or yourself, do have a read of some of my other New Wives Club posts.
