Fringe Necklace Tutorial

Necklaces are my new earrings ever since my earlobes have decided to reject every pair of earrings I've tried to wear. So out with the ear candy and in with the neck candy! I crafted up this fringe necklace with only a few tools and materials and am lovin' the look.

You will need:
> Two strips of fringe that are 10 inches long.
> Scissors
> Link of chain (21 inches long)
> Hot glue gun
> Lighter
> Measuring tape

Cut your fringe and slightly singe the edges just enough to prevent fraying.

Using your hot glue fold over the ends of your fringe.

Then glue the end of your chain in between your fringe, squeeze together while your glue dries.

I placed a small drop of glue every inch or two between my fringe so they wouldn't separate when I wore it, but perhaps you like that look, it's up to you.

You're done! Wear your new neck candy with pride...earrings who?
