The lace of the doily along with the shells and drift wood will hopefully produce good dreams of the summer ahead. This project would be great for after your vacation, picking up items from the beach to make the craft. This could also be a gift for a friend with a beach house.

Tiny Tassel Necklace tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

A hot trend for fall are tassels. I love necklaces. I feel like I wear more accessories in the fall than the summer. Make these tiny delicate little tassels to add to a simple chain to accessorize any fall outfit.

Supplies

Wrap String

Slide Jump Ring

To make the tassel start by wrapping the thread around the craft stick 10 to 20 times, the amount of wraps makes the tassel more full. Once the wraps have been made, slide an open jump ring into the   top loop of the wrap. Then remove the tassel from the craft stick. Wrap around the tassel at the jump ring. This secures the jump ring in place.

Tie Knot

Use the needle to tie a knot to complete the tassel.

Snip the end of the tassel

Then, take a pair of scissors and snip the loops at the end of the tassel to open them up.

Use the length of chain and in the center attach one of the tassels. Place the remaining tassels equal distance from each other on either side of the center.  Use a lobster clasp to close the necklace.

Leather and Chain Bracelet - easy weaving. Tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

Step up your back to school wardrobe with this cool leather and chain bracelet. It looks great with all kinds of outfits and is simple to make. It is a simple wrap no braiding, twisting or special knots!

Supplies

Leather and chain

Start by measuring your wrist. Cut a length of chain the same as your wrist measurement plus half an inch. Cut a length of leather cord that is twice the length of your wrist measurement. Next, thread one end of the leather cord into the first link. Bring the chain into the center of the leather cord and fold the leather in half. Now there are 3 “strings” to work with, 2 leather and one chain.

Leather and Chain

Hold one of the leather strings next to the chain. It remains there the whole time, the other piece of leather is the working string, the one that wraps around the chain and leather.

Loop Leather and Chain

Follow the pictures, take the working strip of leather, insert the end into the chain link through the front and out the back. Wrap it around the side of the chain and strip of leather and repeat the insert in to the chain link below. Continue this until you reach the end and tie the leather ends together and cut any excess off.
