DIY SHOUROUK INSPIRED PVC & RHINESTONE NECKLACE

The holiday season is in full swing and over the next couple of weeks I’m looking forward to sharing with you loads of super fun DIY projects which will get you through the party season looking and feeling super chic. Get ready for sequins, rhinestones, paillettes and so much holiday sparkle! First up? A necklace fit for a party queen. Inspired by the amazing Shourouk pieces I’ve been seeing everywhere, I had some rhinestones left over from my embellished duffle bag and decided to make my own version. Read on to see how (you’ll be surprised how easy it is).

11. Once it is dry, thread your needle and then fold the top edges of the pvc over to create loops for the chain. Sew it down with one or two stitches and then glue another rhinestone over the top of the stitch to hide it.
