DIY: Button Brooch Necklace a la Anne Hathaway
We love Kristen from Glitter ‘N Glue almost as much as we love all of her DIY projects! This time she went so above and beyond. How much would you love to have Anne Hathaway’s necklace from the Oscars? Time to make it!
Although I wasn’t crazy about her dress, the second I saw Anne Hathaway’s Oscar necklace I thought to myself… CLEARLY SHE READS MY BLOG!!!! lol Her Tiffany & Co necklace reminded me of a petite version of the brooch necklace I crafted a few weeks ago (here). I see you Anne! In honor of Anne’s Oscar win and what has become a little “DIY an Oscar winners necklace” tradition around here, I present to you a DIYable version of Anne’s Oscar night stunner…
Materials: Buttons, Brooch Closures, Safety Pins, Chain, Lobster Claw Closure
Now I have to admit I cheated a little #womp I got lucky and stumbled upon these mini brooches, but don’t worry if you can find any because they’re easy to create. Compile a collection of your favorite rhinestone buttons. Earrings are also a good alternative too. You can pic up basic brooch (or bar) pins at your local craft store (here). They cone in a variety of sizes. Simply remove the shank from the back of your button and use a little E6000 to apply the pin. Allow some time to dry and now you have your mini brooches!
DIY TIP: If the clasp of your pin is not secure and you’re worried about your brooch opening, apply a little glue to your closure to prevent it from opening.
Link your pieces together using the safety pins.
Link ‘em up!
Attach the chain to your linked pieces. Use a jump ring, if necessary.
Attache the lobster claw as the closure to your necklace
