So much fun! A couple months ago I designed a woven necklace kit for the line Crafternoon by Hazel and Ruby and this week it is in Joann's stores everywhere! I love the concept of Crafternoon because their kits come with everything you need to make a project in an afternoon. They are great if you want to host a craft party or just be creative on your own. All of the projects that are part of this line are great - I'm going to pick up a few others for myself!
One of the great things about this project is that you can make it completely unique by switching up the order of the leather or the beads. The kit comes complete with a loom, warp and weft string, a needle, beads, leather and an instructional video put together by yours truly.

This product was based on a tutorial I shared last year. Remember the original woven necklace?? If you want to go one step further you can follow the instructions to add gold leaf as well.
1. Dab some craft glue onto the woven necklace and let it dry for a couple minutes until it is tacky.
2. Carefully lay some gold leaf flakes ontop of the tacky glue. Let dry completely and then spray liberally with hairspray so that it doesn't rub off from wear and tear.
Now go visit my friend Lucy over at Craftberry Bush where she is introducing her kit for Crepe Flowers!
