How to make a Cute Doll Pendant Necklace!!!

Hi guys!! Today I am going to show you how I made my doll a cute pendant necklace!!! I was shopping with my friend (the same time when we got cupcakes) and we decided to go into the local bead store. We found a HUGE bowl full of leftover beads from the shop's classes.  Each bead in the bowl was 5 cents!!! They had another bowl, though slightly smaller, of bigger, shaped beads that were only 15 cents. I spent about half an hour digging through the bowl with my friend picking out beads. I have a feeling that this whole mixed up bowl of beads thing is at a lot of bead stores. I don't know... But I got 7 awesome beads for 54 cents. (they had some beads that were smaller than a pea but cost over 3 dollars) I decided to make a cute doll necklace with the beads!! Doll jewelry is really pretty simple, but I wanted to share with you how I made the necklace.

What you will need:
  • beads (I only used one larger bead and a smaller bead as an added accent)
  • scissors
  • thread or string (I used thread because it was in a nice color)
  • needle (optional, I used it to help me thread my beads, but you can survive without one)

First, gather your supplies. I only used the leaf shaped bead and the grayish white square bead.

Next, cut a super long piece of thread, fold it in half and thread the loop through your needle.

Then push your needle through the bead and then thread the tail through the loop. Pull and tighten the thread.

After that I threaded another bead on both pieces of the tail and tied 3-4 knots in a bunch so that the bead would not slide around.

Then separate the two threads that make up the tail and tie it around your doll's neck. If the knot will be permanent be sure to leave enough room for the necklace to come off over the head.

For Christmas my grandma gave me this doll shirt that was handmade by someone, the white capris are an AG store exclusive, and I made the headband from a strip of tulle. I tied it in a knot on my doll's head, and took it off and tied a bow. It accents the outfit and gives the final touch!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!! Don't forget that if you leave me the name of your blog in a comment and the web address before Saturday evening, I will put together a couple blog shout-outs for next week while I am gone at camp. This would be a great way to get the word out about your blog!!! Thanks for reading!!!!
