This year I have set myself the very daunting task of making all of this year's Christmas presents. By January my year long high street shopping ban will be over so I thought I'd finish with a bang. Handmade presents for everyone!

If you too would like to be a little more creative this year I have a series of posts to help you out. This first project is so simple but very stylish. Here's how to make Brass Charm Necklaces.



 You Will Need:

Geometric Brass Charms ( I bought mine from Etsy)
Waxed fabric cord or leather cord
Scissors


Begin by cutting a length of cord that will easily slip over your head. Attach your charm to the cord by using a loop knot as seen in the photo below. Pull tight.


You will then need to create a sliding knot using both ends of the cord. Take the strand of one side and tie it around the other strand of the other side in a simple knot, repeat to the other side. Your necklace will now be adjustable. This may sound confusing but its very easy, try find a video tutorial if you get stuck.


 If you don't need your necklace to be adjustable you can tie whatever knot you like. These easy necklaces only take a few minutes to make and look very chic, you could spend half an hour making them and have enough for all of your friends. Good luck!
