My New Best Friend

So, I have a new best friend.
This friendship started a long time ago,
but it's recently become something more.
It's none other than my hot glue gun. 
How else would I make crafts without it?

Today I made two new versions of the jersey necklaces. 


I wanted to add something to these necklaces, but I just wasn't sure what.  That was until I found an old ring that I don't wear anymore.
So, I threaded the ribbons through the ring one by one and glued the ends together.  I can either wear it loose or twisted.  Either way, I think the "bling" adds a little bit of sophistication to an otherwise very casual necklace. 

I also added some flare to a dull grey necklace.  And voile! (The "e" needs an accent mark.) 


I had been trying to figure out how to improve this grey necklace when I started wrapped some white ribbon around it.  I thought it looked cool and made it more sturdy by gluing the white ribbon to the grey ribbons at different spots.  The necklace is very versatile because I can wear it long and I can also wear it short by doubling it up.  I'm wearing it now because I like it so much. 

And so my friendship continues with my glue gun. 
I hope it's one that lasts for a very long time. 

P.s. I hope that Casey Abrams from American Idol is safe tonight! 


  1. Adorable! You are so creative!

  2. I love my glue gun. I brought it all the way from KS to Canada with me :-)
    Love your ideas to fancy up the necklace!
