Diy cork necklace

Hi guys,

in this tutorial I will show you how to make an easy necklace with cork and a stamp. It is a great DIY because you can make it very personal by stamping whatever you like on it. You could also make best friend necklaces by making two that match.

This is what you’ll need:

  • A stamping pad
  • A cork
  • A pretty stamp (it doesn’t have to be the same size as the cork)
  • A chain
  • A pin
  • A pretty charm, this is optional but will make the necklace much prettier

Step one is to take the cork and cut off a slice. You can do this with a fretsaw but a knife will work just fine too. The slice should be about a little less than a centimeter thick.

The next step is to just take the stamp, press it in the inkt firmly and then press it on the cork. Make sure to not move the stamp as soon as you’ve touched the cork, or it’ll become a mess.

Let the inkt dry for about 10 minutes before you go on to the next step. I also added a thin layer of clear nail polish on the cork to protect the ink.

With the pin, punch a hole into the cork from behind and bend it around the cork.

Bend it again and wrap it around the top of the pin. fullsizerender-24

I decided to add a pretty charm by sliding it on a ring and around the pin.

And your necklace is finished!
