In my failed attempt to organize all of my crafting materials this weekend. I came across several copper pipe pieces scattered in my drawers left over from my DIY end table project. As always the wheels started turning and before I knew it I was at Home Depot. A few inches of PVC clear tubing and my copper pieces had a new chic purpose.
Here’s what you will need:
2″ -1″ Copper pipe
14″ Cord trim
3.5″ -5/8 OD PVC clear tubing
Set of leather end caps
(The leaf is just there, because its pretty.)
I had several different sizes of copper piping but you will need a 2″ piece you can find already cut pieces at Home Depot for less than $2.
With a X-Acto knife cut a 3.5″ piece of the PVC clear tube.
Take one of the leather end caps and add glue inside. Then push the end of the trim cord carefully into the cap.
Hold the end cap and cord trim for a couple of minutes until the glue cools down. Repeat this step on the other end.Slide the plastic tube through the copper pipe.
Now slide the trim cord through the plastic tube and you are done.
Chic, cheap and easy statement necklace. I really loved this project, so much so that I plan to make more in different styles.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and make your own statement necklace too.
