Teddy Bear Necklaces

Do you have an old teddy?  Are you a fan of Charlie Bears?  

Today's project is to make your favourite bear a necklace using wooden beads, buttons, a brass bell or an old key. You could try using charms off a broken necklace or any mis-matched buttons you have in the sewing box. 

Keep any pieces of lovely ribbon and you could make something like this for your bear.

This bear (see below) I bought at an afternoon car boot and he was stuffed in a box with toy cars, doll's clothes and a wooden boat.

I made his necklace from a piece of waxed cord and a handful of old buttons. 

Here is another necklace (see below) which I made from wooden beads, cord and jute. The little heart pendant came off a broken charm necklace.

Once you have your beads and buttons ready, all you need is something to thread them with. Many craft shops sell waxed cord - £15 a reel - or leather thonging for £60 a reel. 

*Tip: I used garden twine, a brass bell and wooden beads in this project as I wanted that prim, rustic look.

If you wanted to make a necklace, I am happy to provide you with all the items you require. 

The kits can be ordered in any colour you want.  

Choose from the drop-down menu to make sure you receive a kit with colours you love.

Here are some examples of how to thread. Be creative, ladies and let me know what you think of the projects by leaving a comment.
Many thanks for reading.
