When we were doing mini society I made some washer necklaces and I decided to do a craft post on them. It is very simple, just make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did – making these without nail polish remover on hand, your hand will get polishy. (Sorry spellcheck, I’m just going to leave it that way.)
What you will need:
- an old container filled with water
- a pencil or wooden dowel
- two colors of nail polish (three works, but two looks better)
- a small washer, the size of a penny
- embroidery floss
To start with, choose two colors of nail polish and unscrew the lids. But wait! Don’t do anything quite yet. Get both hands on the lids and…. GO! Quick! Pick up the lids and hold them over the water. The nail polish should sink to the bottom of the container. Don’t be afraid if the nail polish kinda goes away when the first drop hits the water; it always does that.
Swirl the nail polish with your pencil or dowel.
And place the washer necklace on top of the nail polish. The nail polish dries on top of the water very quickly, so don’t wait long.
Now for step two. Take your embroidery floss and cut a length that is about ten inches long when folded in half.
The tying is super easy, just extremely hard to describe. First, put the looped end of the floss through the washer………..
And pull the unlooped end through the looped end.
….until it closes tight.
Congratulations! You have made a marbled washer necklace!
