The Drunken Yarn


Marble Jade Earrings and Pendant via A Beautiful Mess

This is way easy and would make for quick jewelry sets to give at Christmas as gifts.

For a bracelet make a medium sized ball and instead of having the wire loop on one side, have it on two opposite sides and attach chain to it. You could have more than one ball to even out the weight a bit too.

To help these pendants last, bend the wire and push it in the clay tip first and then curve it a bit. It’s a bit difficult to write out a good description but it will really help anchor the wire so the clay ball doesn’t fall off your smooth straight wire due to gravity and wear.


Faux Druzy Stud Earrings via Minted Strawberry for Craftaholics Anonymus

If you have the available power tools this project looks too legit to quit. You can make rock charms for anything. Necklaces, bracelets, gift tags, beer/wine charms, stitch markers, etc. etc. I won’t do all the creative work for you, jeez.

Due to the use of power tools this is not a drunken project.

Prettiness and super easy Chevron Bangle from Yellow Blackbird.

DIY Stitched Wooden Pendant Necklace. Unfortunately you can only order the pendant templates online but they have so many possibilities why wouldn’t you?

Tatertots and Jello this Sunday with a Anthropology knockoff. Stick it to the hipsters with this way cheap, way easy, way cute nautical rope necklace. I’m going to JoAnn’s later today anyways so I may be picking up some supplies!

Finger knit bracelets made from old tshirts and other jersey knit fabrics.

Easy peasy pumpkin squeezy

What What?! Look at this necklace. Made entirely by a meter of zipper, some glue and thread to hold it together, and a big ass rhinestone (and a clasp but that was self explanatory, yeah?)

Its pretty simple to do and has a big impact on whatever you’re wearing.

I played baseball as a kid. I was a catcher. I was awful. I just won’t let anyone know if I make this bracelet. I’ll tell them I made it from my first home run baseball.

They have homeruns in peewee right?

DIY Shrink wrap pendants from How About Orange. Easy to make any type of charm with these you don’t need to keep it typographical. You don’t have to keep them white either, just draw on the shrink wrap, bake it and the drawing will come out on the shrink wrap just a third-ish the size. But if you use sharpies or colored pencils realize that the baking and shrinking process will make the colors much darker. Have at it.

(PS: The use of scissors and ovens causes this to not be a drunk project, the burn marks on my arms are proof, drunk+ovens=lifelong scars on your wrist that cause people to act funny when the notice them until you say “Oh no! I wasn’t trying to kill myself! I just make bad life choices.)
