DIY Slytherin Y necklace

DIYHarry Potter

So lately I’ve noticed a trend of Y necklaces being really popular, and me being the nerd that I am thought to myself, “I wonder if I can make a Slytherin one….” And voila! That’s how I came up with the DIY Slytherin Y necklace. I like it because it’s not overly obvious that it is a Harry Potter necklace, it could be any type of necklace depending on what beads you use. But I know it’s a Slytherin necklace and now so do you. πŸ˜€

Doctor Who Charm Bracelet DIY

Doctor Who

Hello friends!

I was on Pinterest one day when I came across this picture. But then I saw the price and figured I could make a Doctor Who Charm bracelet for cheaper. So I did!

I found it at this website.

Of course I really wanted one for myself, because what jewelry wearing Whovian wouldn’t? πŸ˜‰ So I started looking into making my own. Thank you Etsy and Amazon!

Here is a list of the supplies needed to make your own Doctor Who bracelet.

-Needle nose pliers, can be gotten at any craft store

-Round nose pliers, these ones came from Wal-Mart a long time ago.

-Headpins, I got mine on Amazon

-Chain, 3.96 at Wal-Mart

-Jump rings, I used Silver and Brass each was 2.00 at Wal-Mart

-Clasp

You also need to get your charms and beads.

-Silver and black beads, 2.00 each at Wal-Mart

-Blue glass beads, 2.50/25 beads + shipping from Etsy

-Charms, 31.55 + shipping from Etsy

Here are the two Etsy stores I got the charms from

I spent about 50 dollars or so on all the supplies. That is because I planned on making 4 bracelets, one for me and one for each of my sisters. So roughly about 12.50 per bracelet. Not bad!

I forgot to put the Weeping Angel in the picture, but I’m kind of ok with that. πŸ˜‰

Now to make the bracelet!

1- Cut the chain to the desired length. I did about 7 inches.

2. Put a jump ring on the end and attach the clasp to the other end using a jump ring. I used both the needle nose pliers and the round nose pliers to open and close the jump rings.

3- Lay out what order you want your charms to be in.

Serious props if you can guess why their is a sword charm!

4-Attach the charms to the bracelet using jump ring.

Did you notice the charms didn’t stay in the same place? πŸ™‚

5- Next slide the beads on the head pins. Use the round nosed pliers to create a loop on one end. Open up the loop, attach it to the bracelet, and close the loop so it stays put.
