Hi loves! The tutorial that I’ve been promising you is finally here! I’m replacing this week’s “Weekend Fun” with a different kind of weekend fun. Oo la la. Ok, grab some supplies and get beading!

DIY Knot Necklace Tutorial

You’ll need:

scissors
glue (just a dab, so most craft glues will do)
beads (I like having two different sizes, but you can use whatever you’d like!)
tweezers (not totally necessary, but helpful)
ruler 
about 22’ of silk thread (yes, feet not inches!)
Here’s what to do:
Measure out the thread to 22’ (you can make it shorter if you want; this length makes for a long necklace that can be doubled around the neck)
Fold thread in half and knot about 2” down from the top, leaving a loop 
Time to string beads and make knots! Bead and knot in any pattern you choose. I did: Bead knot knot bead knot knot bead etc.
For the larger beads, string both threads through. For smaller beads, string one thread through and leave one to wrap around the bead and knot below it
Holding tweezers at the base of the beads while knotting helps to make a close, tight knot
It’s also helpful to pull both threads in opposite directions after knotting to tighten
Bead and knot like crazy (I suggest a nice movie in the background)
When you reach a few inches away from the end of the thread, knot it together with the loop of thread in the beginning of the strand
Trim the excess thread and add a bit of glue to reinforce the knot
Wear your necklace proudly! Enjoy!
Hope you have a great weekend! I’d love to see pictures of your knot necklaces!
