Hi all,

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.

2″ -1″ Copper pipe

14″ Cord trim

3.5″ -5/8 OD PVC clear tubing

Set of leather end caps

Tools:

Glue gun

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.

Take one of the leather end caps and add glue inside. Then push the end of the trim cord carefully into the cap.

DSC_0080Hold the end cap and cord trim for a couple of minutes until the glue cools down. Repeat this step on the other end.DSC_0084Slide 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.
