DIY Cotton Rope Necklace

The ideas are endless with the versatility of cotton rope. We love the idea of dying the cotton different colors since it holds dye well, and creates a bright fashion piece. We love that this project gives the strong material a feminine touch. What would you create? Read on for steps and supplies...

What you need

  • Rope
  • Fabric Dye

Let's Get Started

Step 1

Gather all materials

Step 2

Lay out the rope and spray with fabric dye. Let dry.

(The dye we used sets with heat, so put in dryer or use a hair dryer)

Step 3

Add the copper tubing by threading the rope through the tube.

Step 4

Next, trim the ends of the rope, leaving a small amount of tape to keep the rope from unraveling. Then attached the end caps with glue. Let dry.

Step 5

Attached jump rings and lobster clasp with the jewelry pliers.
