Crystal Drop Necklace

I found these crystals today at the thrift store I think they came off an old chandelier. But I have seen similar ones at the craft store or even at the bead store. This necklace is so simple and fun to make. 

Trace around the crystal and cut fabric.

Paint the crystal with Mod Podge and place the fabric pretty side down on the crystal then paint over it with more Mod Podge.

Let dry. The Mod Podge will dry clear. Then poke a hole through the fabric with something sharp like a finishing nail or thumb tack.

Use a jump ring or make your own out of wire like I did here and put on your favorite chain.

I cant pick a favorite, I love them all!

I am giving one of these fabulous necklaces away!! Check out "First GIVEAWAY ever" on the side bar.
