Golden snitch DIY necklace that you’ve been missing in your life!
Choker necklaces are really big right now (I see them every where!). So what better way to show my Harry Potter pride than by making me a golden snitch choker?? It’s super easy and didn’t take me very long to make at all! And what Harry Potter nerd wouldn’t love to be wearing their very own personal golden snitch?!
Golden snitch DIY necklace
Black ribbon- I got mine at Walmart for about $2.00.
Gold beads-These are from Joann’s for $1.00.
These things I already had on hand, but you can find them at most crafts stores.
Jump rings, silver
Straight head pins, silver
Round nosed pliers
Chain nosed pliers
2 silver wing charms
(Not pictured) hot glue gun and glue sticks
Measure around the circumference of your neck. Mine was 14 inches.
Cut the ribbon the circumference of your neck plus one inch.
Slide a jump ring onto the ribbon.
Fold the end of the ribbon over the jump ring about half an inch.
Put a line of hot glue on the ribbon to seal the jump ring on.
Repeat the process on the other end of the ribbon.
Open the jump ring using your chain nosed and round nose pliers. And place a clasp on the jump ring. Close the jump ring.
Link a bunch of jump rings together to create a chain. Open the jump ring on the other side the same way that you did previously. Place the chain on that jump ring and close the jump ring.
Place the bead onto one of the headpins. And cut the head pin, using the round nosed pliers, so that you can create a loop above the bead.
Create a loop using your round nosed pliers above the bead. Make it large enough so that you can also put the two wings charms on the wire as well.
Open the loop by taking your round nosed pliers and pulling the end of the wire toward you. Once it is open slide on your two wing charms. Make sure that they are going the same direction. Close the loop back up so everything will stay in place.
Open a jump ring and place your golden snitch on it and put the ribbon inside of the jump ring. Close the jump ring.
Enjoy your awesome new necklace!!
