Okay. Do I have a treat for you! My daughters love ice cream and popsicles. I know, what kid doesn’t? My youngest daughter loves ice cream so much that she actually thinks her middle name should be strawberry ice cream. Anyways, I wanted to incorporate their two loves of ice cream and popsicles and make them into fun and cute necklaces that they could actually wear.
Here’s What You Need:
- Wool Felt (You could use any type though.)
- Thread (Sewing Machine Optional)
- Eyelet Kit
- Tiny Hole Punch (Optional)
- Chain Necklace
- My Template
Begin by downloading and printing out the template…
Next, cut out your pieces of Felt. Now it’s time to sew. Sew the ice cream cone first or the popsicle stick depending on which one you’re making. Once that part is done, finish by sandwiching the cone or stick between the two top pieces and sew them in place.
Now that you’re finished sewing them, it’s time to insert the eyelet. Start by punching a hole where you want the eyelet to be located. Insert the eyelet through your punched hole. Use a hammer to gently pound and flatten the eyelet with the eyelet tool. I did this on top of a piece of wood so that it would help keep the eyelets from getting too flat.
That’s it. Very straight forward and they are pretty quick to make. Just thread your chain through the eyelet and put them on.
I hope your’kids love these necklaces as much as mine do… just don’t let them eat them 😉
