Mom, if you're reading this, STOP NOW! Thanks :-D
If you're not my mom, keep reading for a super cute Mother's day gift idea.
I found this inspiration on Pinterest several weeks ago and knew I wanted to make this for my mom for mother's day.
The great thing is they are super simple and take about 20 minutes or less.
Sarah Ortega, gives a great tutorial on how to make this necklace. Here is how I made mine, which is pretty much the same. I used birthstone beads for each of the grand kids in the necklace above.
Start by threading the beads on the wire
Tuck the end of the wire around the last bead
Then slide the rest of the beads back down to cover the end (sorry for the blurry photo, darn camera)
Next arrange them in a group how you'd like
Begin wrapping the wire around in a circle and start forming your nest
Then wrap around the edge a couple times if you like this look
With or without the wrapped edges
There you go, a super cute and super easy gift for your mom, grandma, sister, friend, yourself :-D
Happy Mother's Day!
