There are crafters who make beautiful jewelry out there, but I’m not one of them. If you are, then you’ve got handmade gifts pretty much figured out! But if you’re like me, then this easy-to-customize DIY glass bead necklace tutorial may be just the thing for the women on your lists, from teens on up. It doesn’t require a lot of specialized tools, only a few craft-store items, and the directions are clear and doable.
Besides using photos of kids like shown, you could use a saying (joy, love, etc.), image like a leaf or sign, or a close-up photo of something beautiful like a rose. How about putting it on a ribbon like a choker necklace? Or adding one for every kid or grandkid in a charm bracelet? Time to get your creativity on.
