  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Remember playing dress-ups as a kid? Chances are you've still got a box of costume jewelry buried somewhere in the back of your closet. Why let it go to waste? Here's one way to make it pretty again!

    Step 2

    Here are the supplies. You can use any colour of beads and any style brooch...it's up to you! My beads are literally ones I used to play with as a kid.

    Step 3

    My mother gave me this vintage floral brooch several years ago and I've never used it...

    Step 4

    Make sure your brooch has a pin or clip attached to the back.

    Step 5

    Straighten out your necklace and lay it flat.

    Step 6

    Fold it in half.

    Step 7

    Put the folded necklace behind your neck, so the ends hang down in front.

    Step 8

    Open the pin on the back of the brooch and use it to carefully clip the two ends of the necklace together. And that's it~ vintage chic!

    Step 9

    In case you didn't get that: open out the ends to form a rain drop shape...

    Step 10

    ...and clip both strands of beads together with your brooch!

    Step 11

    This would look just as pretty with a strand of faux pearls. You could also use a bow or any other hair clip instead of a brooch.

    Step 12
