DIY Washer Necklace

Washer Necklace

Since school started last week, I thought it would be fun for my daughter to make some pretty necklaces to wear to school and maybe give a couple to her friends. I got the idea for making these here on the Parents website. When I told her what I was thinking she was so excited. I went to the store and bought some bright nail polish colors that were on sale (end of season sales are AWESOME!).  And then the girls started painting the washers.

I have to say that I thought this was going to be a pretty neat and clean project.  I did not put the girls in their paint clothes because I thought with the small nail polish brushes we would not be making much of a mess….. BOY WAS I WRONG!  My little one had nail polish all over.  Since she is only two I should have figured as much oh well lesson learned.  I only got the one picture of her making these because I ended up having to strip her down so she did not ruin her clothes.  The kids has talent though and even got the polish in her hair.  I was so worried we would never get it out but it came out no problem in the bath so that is good news.

Both girls had to wear their new washer necklaces to school and daycare the next day, and my oldest had a blast passing out a few to her friends.  She even came home and said that she had more friends that wanted them so we needed to make more.  Since they were so cheap and easy to make we just may have to make these for a party to pass out or something.  We could do black and orange for Halloween and red and green for Christmas.  The possibilities are endless!

Washer (any size will work, you can get them at the hardware store)
Nail Polish (any color you like!)
Hair Dryer (optional)


Paint your washers with nail polish.  You will need to do one side and when dry flip and do the other side.  NOTE:  You may need more than one coat of polish
To speed up the drying time you can use a hair dryer to blow them dry.
Once the washers are all painted and dry, use a different color nail polish to decorate them.
Measure the length of craft lace you want depending on how long you want the necklace to be.
Then tie the end together, double or tripling the knot is okay and preferred!
Put the opposite of the tied end through the washer hole
Then bring it back around and through the craft-lace again to secure the washer onto it.
This is how it should look when done.
Now just slip on your new Cool, Awesome, Rad Jewelry!
You can decorate them any way you want.  It is hard to go wrong here and they look great no matter what you do to them.

    I loved the girls modelling what they had made. I think this would work as a craft project when my 4 year old granddaughter comes over. She loves doing crafts with me. Thank you.

    I would love to retire in San Raphael, France on the Meerreitandan Sea. It is so stunning! I’d also do the job on learning French since very few folks there speak English.

    Whoever wrote that article didn’t do their homework. There is way more evidence that is provided all over the net that leans towards bo’s birth in Kenya than in HI. Anyway, bo provided his own evidence by saying he was born a british subject.
