As moms, we tend to be busy and stay busy most of the day. This slay-at-home mom had gotten to the point of being more of a sewer rat than a domestic gangster. By upgrading my style, I also decided to work on my mom skills. Born from this skill building momma was the idea of mommy and me days. I have three boys and a girl, and it always seemed like we never had a chance to spend time together doing something we both liked. We both decided mommy and me necklaces would be super fun to make.
I headed to Hobby Lobby. Love that store. It puts you in a time warp where the outside world goes by really fast and before you realize it its been 4 HOURS! But I digress. Before we went, I checked to see what was on sale that week, low and behold, the beads and certain jewelry brands were 50% off.
This is what I got:
You’re items may very depending on your personal style and what is on sale. Total I spent $16.97 (but I also made THREE more necklaces for myself with the extra chain and supplies) Dividing the total by 5, I came up with $3.39, so less than $4 bucks for both.
Here’s the steps:
Visit my Facebook page for the video tutorial HERE.
First cut the chain with the wire cutters to the length you want it to hang for both of you
Second open the supplies and put them in piles on the table.
Third separate the loops the way you want the necklace to look
Fourth hook it together
THATS IT! Simple. Easy. Cheap. She had fun and I got to get in special time with her creating a necklace that we can wear together. With a cost of less than $4, this mommy and me look correlates with spring trends and it took us five minutes to make it. Just remember to check the sales, get the supplies you need for your style, and create away.
